A study of 70 globes removed after cataract extraction forms the basis for Landolt's study of the anatomic and pathologic changes that may follow this surgical procedure. Although his conclusions are much the same as those of other investigators, they are well presented.
The series contains a rather large number of eyes, removed shortly after cataract extraction. These include eyes in which α-chymotrypsin was used during surgery, and it is Landolt's opinion that these eyes indicate that the use of this enzyme delays the healing of the cataract incision. This is particularly evident in the first few days after operation.
It is unfortunate that the photomicrographs are neither large nor distinct enough for one to study them in detail.
