Professor Ernst Fuchs (1851-1930): A Defining Career in Ophthalmology


Professor Ernst Fuchs (1851-1930): A Defining Career in Ophthalmology

Andreas Muller et al. Arch Ophthalmol. .


Although his name is commonly recognized in conjunction with various corneal and anterior segment disorders, Ernst Fuchs' contribution to ophthalmology exceeds purely the delineation of ocular diseases and the detailed description of signs. Fuchs' collection of microscopic samples laid the foundation for anatomical and pathological understanding of blood vessels, muscles, and most other tissues of the eye. Additionally, Fuchs was able to pass on his unique knowledge, educating ophthalmologists at an international level. His textbook was, for many decades, the most extensively used reference book in the field of ophthalmology worldwide.
