  • OUCH: Kylberg lost his right eye on October 30, 1895. In attempting to deposit on a shelf above him a box filled with scraps of nails and screws, the edge caught in an overhanging curtain, and the doctor lost his hold on the object. The box was lidless, and in falling it turned half over, precipitating the contents into his upturned face. The sharp point of one of the screws struck the eye, penetrating the cornea and lens. Inflammation immediately gathered in the injured organ, and in order to prevent further complications it was found necessary to extract it. Dr. Cornwall, assisted by Drs. French and Logan, performed the operation. Dr. Kylberg has his right-eye socket tightly bandaged, and at present cannot use his remaining eye for fear of straining it in its present sympathetic state. [Source: "Dr. H. Kylberg," San Francisco Call (11/3/1895)]
