There has been a fascination with the use of electricity in medical practices for centuries. From the use of electric fishes for treating headaches and gout to the employment of artificial electrical devices for the treatment of muscle spasms and tremors, electrotherapeutics has continued to play a role in modern medicine. The earliest uses of electricity in ophthalmology date to the 18th century with a proliferation of electrical applications in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Edward Jackson chronicled the use of galvanic and faradic currents commonly used to treat ocular diseases in the early 20th century. He argued the efficacy of using electrotherapeutics to treat ophthalmic diseases including, among others, the use of electrolysis and the electromagnet, both of which are still employed in contemporary ophthalmology. Nonetheless, while electrotherapy was at the forefront of medicine in the early 20th century, its use fell out of practice with the development of alternative techniques…
