The author outlines the scientific works of Anton (von) Rosas (1791-1855), professor of ophthalmology in Padua and Vienna. Rosas' scientific opinions are compared with those of his teacher (G. J. Beer) and contemporaries. Three topics of medical and surgical ophthalmology have been analyzed in detail: epidemic-contagious ophthalmia of the army, cataract and artificial pupil. Rosas appears as a protagonist of the ophthalmologic culture of his time.
