The German neuro-ophthalmologist, Hermann Wilbrand (b.1851) dedicated his important monograph on the neurological manifestations of visual field defects to Dr. Richard Foerster (1825-1902) of the Univ. of Breslau. (Foerster introduced the first instrument for perimetry and was a pioneer in photometry.) The atlas of plates contains 81 field defect diagrams correlated to disease states of patients. Wilbrand with Sänger published a monumental work on the neurology of the eye in nine volumes (1900-21). See: Courville 2392 and Brit. Opt. Assoc. Cat., p.228. Gorin, p.158.
