Garrison & Morton 5824: "Called "the father of French ophtahalmology", Maître-Jan energetically supported Brisseau's doctrine, ensuring its acceptance. As far back as 1692, Maître-Jan had proved that the opaque lens is cataract, but before Brisseau's work appeared it had been regarded as a sort of skin or pellicle immediately inside the capsule of the lens".
