Clin Exp Ophthalmol. 2005 Apr; 33(2):188-90.CE

This paper investigates the processes of interpretation and integration of the Indian ophthalmic technique known as 'couching for cataract' into Chinese medicine from the sixth to the twelfth century ad. The Indian medical knowledge of this procedure was eventually accepted because it could be reconstructed following Chinese medical concepts.
