Method by-passes surgery BOSTON Scientists have developed a method of us- ing two wrongs to make a right that may allow persons blinded by cataracts to regain their vi- sion without resorting to sur- gery. Boston researchers say light passes through most cataracts cloudy formations in the eye but is scattered and dis- torted. This makes it impossi- ble for the back of the eye to relay an image to the brain. the scientists say they have developed filters that can distort light before it enters the eye. When this light is dis- torted again by the it hits the back of the eye as it normally they say. The two-wrongs method was developed by Dr. David head of the ophthalmology de- partment at Beth Israel Hospi- with the aid of Dr. George professor of physics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

But he said the filters have to been tested on a person because many technical problems still must be overcome. 'Whether we can actually bring this experiment from tfte laboratory to clinical use is still he stressed. Dr. Miller started the filter work with scientists at Techni- cal Operations Inc. in Bur- who were working for the U.S. Army on seeing through which also scat- ter light. The research team made the filters by shining a laser beam through a removed cataract to map the light fluctuations on. special film placed on the other side of the cataract. Then the film was reversed and placed between a light and the cataract. The light passed through both film arid cataract and came out undistorted. Dr. Miller said one problem is how to get a reverse recofd of light passing through a cataract i_ General secretary Rich Bailey has been ap- pointed new general sec- retary of t h e Lethbridge Family YMCA and will commence his duties Sep- tember 1.
