Gullstrand contributed to knowledge of the structure and function of the cornea and to research on astigmatism.
Gullstrand's investigations led to a new concept of the theory of optical images.
Gullstrand showed that although accommodation depends about two-thirds on the increase in convexity of the lens surface, the remaining one-third does not.

 Allvar Gullstrand
Allvar Gullstrand was a Swedish doctor who invented Slit lamp for illuminating and examining eye.
Gullstrand did intensive research on the structure of eye and function of the eye, especially into how it refracts light.
Gullstrand was also interested in corneal astigmatism in which light is refracted unevenly due to the irregular shape of the eye ball.

Gullstrand insisted on being elected to the Nobel physics committee as a representative for mathematical physics, yet he had no formal training.
Gullstrand had earlier declared that each Nobel Prize can be considered a Swedish flag, displayed to be seen by the entire world.
In the end Gullstrand’s friend and colleague, C. Oseen, entered the picture and engineered a prize for Einstein for the discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect (which was also a strategy to allow a prize for Niels Bohr).

Gullstrand’s basic research work on the dioptric apparatus of the eye was published in 1911.
The mean values which he obtained for the refracting power of the human eye provided a clearer understanding of the eye in its capacity as an optical instrument.
Gullstrand can also take credit for recognizing and treating the refraction of light as a three-dimensional problem, with all the consequences that this involved.

 Document: Initial Contacts between Uppsala and Jena
Towards the end of the 19th century, this work was considerably advanced by the scientific achievements of Ernst Abbe, a partner of Carl Zeiss, and by the construction of high precision optical instruments then evolving in the Carl Zeiss factory in Jena.
Gullstrand’s visit to Jena to discuss with Abbe ”certain ideas on the more exact determination of the theory of optical instruments and their construction” marked the beginning of close cooperation that would later constitute a major milestone in the history of ophthalmic instrument design.
Gullstrand’s ideas – particularly his theory of the eye’s center of rotation – had a groundbreaking effect on the development of eyeglass lenses and optical instruments.

Slit Lamp CS-1 Microscope - Nikon slit lamp microscopes are used by ophthalmologists to directly examine the eyes of a patient under the magnification of a binocular microscope by creating a stereoscopic, erect image.
Known also as biomicroscopes, slit lamp microscopes, like the Nikon CS-1 illustrated below, are based on the 1902 design of Swedish ophthalmologist and Nobel Laureate, Allvar Gullstrand.
Model GH - Identical to the model G, the GH-series microscope was equipped with a mechanical stage to ease the burden of linear specimen examination.

In addition to the optimization of the retinal camera (1929) and Comberg’s slit lamp instrument (1933), a large number of instruments for objective refractometry and vision testing were developed.
In 1932 Otto Henker developed what was known as the simplified large ophthalmoscope – ”the little Gullstrand” – on the basis of the large ophthalmoscope.
A real specialty was the polyophthal- moscope for nine observers built at Carl Zeiss in 1929.

According to the River Model of Black Holes, the behavior of objects near fl holes is precisely as if space were falling like a river into the fl hole.
For spherical fl holes, this model was discovered by the German physicist Allvar Gullstrand in 1921, but Gullstrand failed to fully understand the physical importance of his discovery.
In the model, space falls inward at the Newtonian escape velocity.

Swedish physician who was awarded a Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine in 1911 for his work on the refraction of light through the different components of the eye, in particular in determining how the lens of the eye is adjusted to focus on both near and far objects.
