while their subsequent behaviour in water
suggests that the lens has not been modified
in such a way as to affect the amount of
water it is capable of taking up.

The behaviour of lenses in different concentrations of calcium chloride solution
suggests that the lens is permeable to this
substance, and their subsequent behaviour
in water suggest the lens has been
modified in such a way as to interfere
with its capacity to take up water within
the time of the experiment.

<u>Glucose</u>:

Ox lenses immersed in glucose solutions
gained in weight; in 1% solution at the rate
of 8% in one hour and 12% in four hours, and
in 5 and 10% solutions at the rate of 4-7% in
four hours.

Lenses transferred from these solutions to
distilled water after one hour gained an
additional 20 to 22% in weight in a further three
