There are at present only a limited number of eye banks in the Nation. They operate on an extremely short term basis because of toe difficulty of pre serving living cells after the cornea is removed from an eye donor. A method of preserving cornea has long been sought by the medical profession. Lt. Draheim said animal cor neas have been preserved for several months at Bethesda. He said the removed cornea is first Immersed in a glycerol solution . for an hour, then put into a test tube which is immersed in an other solution at a temperature ; of minus 79 degrees centigrade. Finally, the cornea is put into storage at that same temperature in a box filled with dry ice. It is thawed, when needed, by immersion in warm water. Earlier efforts to preserve cor nea have shown a loss of cel lular life. Lt. Draheim said toe animal corneas in the Bethesda experiment seem to retain their cell life for several months. Samuel D. McPherson, Jr., OSNR, worked with Lt. Draheim in toe experiments. About 300 of toe Nation’s lead ing eye specialists are attending the meeting. / Cors Go 81,000 Miles DETROIT.—An average car scrapped in the United States in 1925 had traveled 22,000 miles.
