The retinal folds at the ora serrata, described by Lange in the eyes of children, are essentially an artificial product. The cornea shows great variations in thickness in individual cases. The anterior chamber is much deeper than has hitherto been described. The form of the lens, as examination of fresh eyes shows, is essentially different from all previous descriptions, its thickness measuring in two instances as much as 3.76 mm, and the posterior surface being much more curved than the anterior.
