  • Born at Landskrona , Sweden , Gullstrand was professor (1894–1927) successively of eye therapy and of optics at the University of Uppsala . He applied the methods of physical mathematics to the study of optical images and of the refraction of light in the eye. For this work, he received the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1911.
  • He was entirely self-taught in the fields covering his most important work (geometric and physiological optics). The basis of the science he developed was laid in 1890 in his thesis Bidrag till astigmatismens teori (Contribution to the theory of astigmatism).
  • Gullstrand married Signe Breitholtz (1862-1946) in 1885 and died in Stockholm where he was interred at Norra begravningsplatsen .

    5. 7. <ul><li>His methods of focal illumination, particularly by means of the slit lamp (1911), have acquired the greatest importance to the practical ophthalmologist. </li></ul>
    6. 8. <ul><li>His reflex-free ophthalmoscope (1911) is also a valuable instrument to the ophthalmological diagnostician. </li></ul>
    7. 11. <ul><li>Gullstrand is noted also for his research on astigmatism and for improving the ophthalmoscope and corrective lenses for use after removal of a cataract from the eye. </li></ul>
    8. 13. <ul><li>He was elected a member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences in 1905, and served on the Academy's Prize Committee for Physics. </li></ul><ul><li>While serving on the committee, he used his position to block Einstein from receiving a Nobel Prize in Physics for his theory of relativity, which Allvar believed to be wrong. </li></ul>
