31 hours. Dogs' lenses immersed in mixtures of equal parts of 5% glucose and Ringer's solution gained 4% in a few hours and 5.7% in twenty- four hours; that is to say, they gained at about the same rate as control lenses immersed in Ringer's solution alone. <u>Mixtures of salts</u>: After immersion for two hours in a mixture of equal parts of 1.2% saline and 4.5% calcium chloride solution, ox lenses did not gain in weight when put into distilled water. After standing for one and a half hours in a mixture of 1.2% saline and calcium chloride [text?] 0.5%, lenses gained about 5% in one hour and 8-9% in two hours' immersion in water.
