Failure of Sight From Railway and Other Injuries of the Spine and Head, Its Nature and Treatment
Thomas Wharton Jones
Excerpt from Failure of Sight From Railway and Other Injuries of the Spine and Head, Its Nature and Treatment: With a Physiological and Pathological Disquisition Into the Influence of the Vaso-Motor Nerves on the Circulation of the Blood in the Extreme Vessels
The failure of sight which so often supervenes in cases of concussion of the spinal cord or brain is amaurotic in its character, and appears to depend immediately on a disturbance of the circulation of the blood in the optic nervous apparatus.
How disturbance of the circulation in the optic nervous apparatus should be induced by concussion of the brain, seems intelligible enough; but how such an effect should supervene on injury of the spinal cord, is a question which is not so easily answered at first.
