Case 81.  —(From Dr. John E. Weeks, New York City.)E. V., aged 38, came to the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary, Dr. Weeks' service, Nov. 21, 1903. In the early part of August the patient suffered from intermittent fever, and on August 7 he drank a cupful of wood alcohol for the purpose of breaking up the fever. On the following day the vision of the left eye failed almost entirely, and the vision of the right eye became impaired. The maximum failure of vision was reached at the end of 48 hours. Since then, according to the patient's statement, there has been some improvement.At the present time the vision of the right eye equals 30/40; the vision of the left eye equals fingers at eight feet. There is (see Fig. 1) concentric limitation of the field of vision, most marked in the left eye, an absolute central scotoma in the left eye and a relative central scotoma in the right eye.
