Abstract/Summary

During the heroic age of Antarctic exploration, snow blindness was a common problem, but not all the descriptions of it lit the modern view of the disease, and some of the explorers complained of long-term problems. This article describes the snow blindness and other eye problems that occurred during this era. It also describes how snow blindness was prevented and treated.
