This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed.

Elevation of eyebrow, depression over corrugator supercilii. Eye rather protruded, lagophthalmos; upper lid atrophied, absence of furrows in skin of upper half, veins very prominent, entropion, nearly entire absence of lashes; punctum patent, (never remembers eyelashes, but said to have had them at two years old), thickening of palpebral conjunctiva. Lower lid.--Outer half nearly altogether atrophied, palpebral conjunctiva visible only at extreme outer and inner canthi, in middle no demarcation between it and skin, punctum everted and of no use. Cornea nebulous; iris acts well j pupil normal, and equal to right. Lens.--Normal. Fundus.--Myopic crescent. Vision.--Large objects; has had the eye continually shaded for 33 years. Nose.--Slight deviation...
