But it is chiefly owing to Saunders, Conradi,and Adams, that this mode of removing the cataract hasbeen brought to its present degree of perfection. There are two operations in use, each founded upon theabsorbent principle—the anterior and posterior. Thefirst, or the operation of Conradi, as it is usually called, ischiefly adapted to the soft or fluid cataract, and m

This may perhaps be ascribed to the operation beinggenerally delayed too long, or to the same disposition todisease in the vessel, which gave rise to the aneurism it-self. The operation, however, has proved, very satisfac-torily, that there is no want of collateral branches, andconsequently no danger of gangrene from want of a supplyof blood.

Persons whose eyes are much ex-posed to vivid and reflected lights are said to be peculiarlyliable to cataract. The existence of cataract may be determined generally,by the following s)mptoms.
