Prof Dr Bernard Becker 1920 - 2013
Bernard ("Bernie") Becker passed away on August 28, 2013. His 1982 article on "The Onset and Evolution of Glaucomatous Visual Field Defects" (WM Hart and B Becker, Ophthalmology 1982) is superb reading for anyone interested in glaucoma and visual fields, whether silly or serious. The article is hard to find - here is another copy. You may also be interested in a transcript of a 1990 interview with Dr Becker on his personal history in ophthalmology, from the Bernard Becker Medical Library at the University of Washington School of Medicine.
