3D Scan of Woodcut


This woodcut was designed by Wharton Jones and Richie Brown with the intention of including the illustration in a textbook on ophthalmology that William Mackenzie was developing.

William Mackenzie was a Scottish ophthalmologist and founder of the Glasgow Eye Infirmary in 1850. He studied medicine at the University of Glasgow, was a member of the RCPSG, and eventually held the chair of anatomy at the Anderson Medical School. Mackenzie was one of the leading ophthalmologists of his day, and his publication "Practical Treatise of the Diseases of the Eye" became a must-have textbook for all aspiring ophthalmologists.
