9 <u>The effect of certain radiations on the
proteins of the lens.</u>

Ox eyes exposed for short periods (2-3 hours)
to the radiations from the carbon-tungsten are
filtered through water in a uviol glass cell and
concentrated by a quartz lens, showed no
conclusive changes. They were exposed with the normal aqueous humour in the anterior
chamber and with the aqueous replaced by 5% glucose, and in each case the anterior
surface of the cornea was kept moist with Ringer's
solution. Similar exposures after removal of
the cornea and with the anterior surface of
the lens moistened with Ringer's solution
also showed obvious changes.

Ox lenses immersed in water were exposed to the radiations from a mercury
vapour lamp. No changes due to the radiation
were seen in the lenses, but the fluid
bathing them became opalescent after half an
