dc.description.abstractSyphilis affects the eyes in many ways. They may be the seat of the initial lesion itself, or may be affected, as is much more commonly the case, with the secondary or tertiary symptoms of the acquired disease, while the hereditary taint frequently shows its most manifest results in the organ of vision. No part of the eye is free from its ravages. It may attack it acutely , or only show itself as a chronic disease which has seriously and permanently affected the sight before the patient has been cognisant of any particular trouble. Again, there are times when inflammatory action attacks parts that give rise to secondary troubles, and a new condition of affairs follow which are altogether of themselves foreign in a way to the primary trouble of the eye. and which are quite as serious, if not more so, than the original lesion. Such a train of events we can readily understand might arise should even a slight interference take place to the natural flow of currents within the eyes, and so add another, and a most serious factor to an already troublesome complaint. In the interior of the normal eye there is, generally speaking, a natural flow of fluid from the posterior parts to the anterior through the pupil to find its way out at the angle formed by the junction of the Iris with the Cornea, and it is Unobstructed flow of this current, giving rise to increased pressure within the globe, so far as it is due to Syphilis that I wish to restrict my attention.en
