Event Details

Check out the Truhlsen-Marmor Museum of the Eye’s new Behind the Scenes episode discussing the museum’s collection of eyecups and the quack medicine boom of the 19th and 20th centuries. Eyecups are receptacles used to wash the eye. They were often sold with eye water and marketed as part of regular hygiene or to cure disease. This episode features the Museum Director, Jenny Benjamin, who will unveil the museum’s collection and the people who profited from their sale.
