Abstract

George Critchett (1817-1882) and his son George Anderson Critchett (1845-1925) have influenced the development of ophthalmology and ocular surgery for about a century. They presented new ocular operations such as Critchett’s advancement operation, Critchett’s corneal staphyloma operation, and Critchett’s keratoconus operation, and they invented new surgical instruments such as Critchett’s cataract knife, Critchett’s scissors, and Critchett’s fixation forceps. Both were delicate ocular surgeons managing complex and difficult surgeries.
