been previously treated with citrate, those in
capsules taking up rather more than those
without.

Lenses taken from 10% sodium citrate solution
after various periods of immersion and transferred
to distilled water, took up water at the same
rate independent of the time of treatment with
sodium citrate, within the limits of the
experiment.

Ox lenses were transferred to sodium
citrate solutions after standing in water for
half to one hour. In 10% solution they lost
weight rather more quickly than without
previous standing in water; in 5% they
remained steady; and in 1.25% they gained
a very little, much less than lenses which
had not been immersed in water.

The behaviour of the lenses in different
concentrations of sodium citrate suggests that
the lens is impermeable to sodium citrate.
