Letter to the Editor
Dr. Daljit Singh (Amritsar)
I have been working on the fluid movement in the anterior segment through lymphatics. The standard teaching is that there are no lymphatics in the eye. I wish to start my association with PJO by attaching a self explanatory picture of the limbus showing lymphatics. If the ophthalmologists start looking at the limbus under high power of slit lamp microscope, they shall get a gold mine of information on lymphatics. Once you understand their importance, you shall not like to hurt them during any surgery especially during glaucoma surgery.
During my recent visit to Pakistan, i had an opportunity to go to Fauji hospital in Rawalpindi and Mughal hospital in Lahore. We do not have a single charitable hospital of such grandeur in our Punjab, in public or private sector. There must be many others too, which I have not seen. I saw the surgeons perform in excellent operation theater environment, which is superior to ours.
My congratulations to Pakistani ophthalmologists who made that possible.
