Excerpt from Papers to Be Presented Before the Section on Ophthalmology of the American Medical Association: New York City, June 6-8, 1917
TO the favorite doctrine of most anatomical writers, we cannot subscribe, viz., that the obliqui are the antagonists of the recti. This error is based on another, viz., that there is a necessity for antagonism. I. E., that the recti retract the ball from its ordinary position in the socket.
It is to be regretted that, at least in the published abstract of his paper, the writer adduces no facts or Observations to sustain these very positive assertions.
