Al-Ghafiqi (d. 1165)
Al-Ghafiqi, from Spain, wrote a book in the 12th century called Al-Murshid fil Kuhl (The Right Guide in Ophthalmology). The book is not just confined to the eye but gives details of the head and diseases of the brain. Today a tourist visiting Cordoba can see the commemorated bust of Muhammad Al-Ghafiqi, a tribute paid from the people of Cordoba to an outstanding Muslim eye specialist.
