A Very Rare Frost's Artificial Eye

Description: Offered is a good example of Frost’s Artificial Eye. The set is contained within its original pine case with its accessories. The instrument is signed on the base;

FROST’S ARTIFICIAL EYE
MANUFACTURED BY
CURRY & PAXTON
LONDON

At the back of the case is a small retail label for Watson & Sons, 16 Forest Rd, Edinburgh
William Adams Frost (1853-1935), an English ophthalmologist, invented this ‘artificial eye’ to teach medical students about defects in vision. The glass lenses on the wooden stand can be placed to show short-sightedness, long-sightedness, and astigmatisms. Artificial eyes like this one were also used to give students practice using an ophthalmoscope, so they would be able to diagnose eye complaints.

The eye when assembled stands on a heavy brass base with a beveled glass window to the top under which is a printed paper relating to the use of the instrument. At the top of the stand is the adjustable support for the lenses. Under the fold up lid is a steel shade that fits over the top of the instrument.

Condition: Cosmetically the instrument is in very good condition retaining most of the original lacquer. The outside of the case is a bit marked. Optically all the lenses are in good condition though one appears to be missing. Mechanically everything is good and tight.

Dimensions:
Assembled Height 27cm
