Abstract:   (7829 Views)
One of the major works of Ibn Nafis, or in other words, his only book on ophthalmology is “Al-Mahzab fi al-Kohl al-Mojarrab.” In an introduction and two sections, the book addresses the theoretical and practical aspects of ophthalmology and simple and compound ophthalmic drugs and their formulations. In this book, Ibn Nafis deals with the scientific aspects of vision, and by rejecting the hypotheses of his predecessors, he proposed new hypotheses, which were scientific and novel for his time. His vision theory complements the theory proposed by Ibn Al-Haytham. Furthermore, he discussed the hypotheses provided by other scientists, and extended them in ten chapters. He also proposed some new ideas about ocular diseases and diplopia. In this paper, which is based on the manuscript of the book, we have attempted to evaluate the book chapters. Furthermore, the vision theory of Al Nafis was compared with those of his predecessors and his novel contributions were introduced
