Institute of Ophthalmology at the Royal Eye Hospital


    THE immense clinical material and the considerable research activities at the Royal Eye Hospital have prompted the Council of the Hospital to initiate the establishment of an Institute of Ophthalmology, where teaching and research can be carried out systematically and co-ordinated with the work of laboratories and of other ophthalmic and of general hospitals. The Institute will have an independent Board of Governors; and panels of scientific, medical, surgical and ophthalmic advisers have been set up to help in planning and carrying out the work. The Institute will be open to all ophthalmologists, and offers of co-operation will be welcomed.
