dbo:abstract
  • Dame Ida Caroline Mann, DBE, FRCS (6 February 1893 in West Hampstead, London – 18 November 1983) 'a distinguished ophthalmologist...equally well known for her pioneering research work on embryology and development of the eye, and on the influences of genetic and social factors on the incidence and severity of eye disease throughout the world'. She was inducted into the Ophthalmology Hall of Fame in 2007. She diagnosed a trachoma epidemic amongst Indigenous people in the Kimberleys and travelled extensively in Western Australia to examine and treat Indigenous people with trachoma. Mann became convinced that better housing and sanitation, rather than administration of antibiotics, would improve this health crisis. (en)
