Abstract

One of the best academics in the history of ophthalmology in the Middle East was Max Meyerhof. One of his great contributions was collecting original papers in the bazaars in old Cairo, as well as learning Arabic, surrounding himself of scholars, translating those old manuscripts and introducing them to the West. In this work, we remember his intellectual contributions.
