Sight failing for six weeks, being alike in the two eyes. Vision = 16 JäGeranium Maculatum ger; not improved by glasses,

For an uncertain time he has noticed his sight to be gradually failing, until now it has become so imperfect that is unable to attend to his business,

For a long period his sight has gradually failed, till he can only see to read, for a short time, characters of one-third of an inch,

About nine months since his sight began to fail, and has continued to get worse to the present time. He can only see to read No. 18 test-type (canon) with his left eye, and with the right, No. 16 (two-line great primer), word by word; and distant objects are equally indistinct,

Slight failing slightly for twelve months, the defect being most apparent in a bright light (? central scotoma). With his glasses he could, however, still read the newspaper; but his distant vision, unaided by glasses, was only 40 Snellen, at fifteen feet. Optic discs definitely pale at their temporal portion; no other changes,

Complained for three years past that he had been unable to find suitable spectacles. The sight had failed gradually, but he believed that it had remained stationary for about six months prior to his admission. Vision, without glasses, each eye = 18 JäGeranium Maculatum ger, and not 200 Suellen, at twenty feet. Pupils active, the left rather larger than the right.
