Karl Stellwag von Carion (1823-1904) was a very important figure of European ophthalmology during the 19th century. Besides his other contributions in ophthalmology such as ‘Stellwag sign’, coining the term ‘ectopia lentis’ for lens dislocation and fundamental studies on glaucoma, refraction, accommodation and light polarization, his studies on ocular cancer were very significant but not highlighted by modern research.
