Edwin Theodor Saemisch (September 30, 1833, Luckau – September 29, 1909) was a German ophthalmologist who was born in Luckau. In 1858 he received his medical doctorate from the University of Berlin, and afterwards was an assistant to Albrecht von Graefe in Berlin, and Alexander Pagenstecher in Wiesbaden. In 1867 he became "professor extraordinary" at the University of Bonn, and in 1873 attained the title of "full professor".

Saemisch specialized in eye disorders, particularly diseases of the conjuctiva, sclera and cornea. He is credited for providing descriptions of vernal conjunctivitis and a type of corneal ulcer called ulcus serpens corneae. He is remembered for his written works, especially the multi-volume manual on ophthalmology titled Handbuch der gesammten Augenheilkunde. This work was co-authored with Alfred Carl Graefe, who was a cousin to Albrecht von Graefe.

Associated eponyms:
  • Saemisch's ulcer: a serpiginous corneal ulcer; ulcus serpens corneae.
  • Saemisch's operation: An operation for hypopyon ulcer.
