The Fifth Abraham Albert Ticho Lecture
  • Paul Henkind
Conference paper
Part of the Documenta Ophthalmologica Proceedings Series book series (DOPS, volume 25)


This lecture is dedicated to Dr. Abraham Ticho, the renowned ophthalmologist and humanitarian. I humbly hope it does sufficient honor to his memory.
