LAMB A lot of us with cataracts would hke to hear something about this new operation. I think they use ultrasound to vibrate out the cataract. Is this better than the old DEAR READER The lens is normally clear and composed of soft gelatinous material that can change its shape readily The shape is changed by the contraction of a ring of muscles around the outer edge of the disk-like lens. As the clear lens material gets cloudy you can no longer see through it. The area of opacification may be small or grow to include the entire lens. In older persons the cataract is often hard and rigid In younger people it may be soft and pliable. There are a number of problems with cataract sur- gery. The lens is encased in a capsule membrane. Immediately behind the lens is the large chamber of the and it is full of a jellylike material called the vitreous The part of the cap- sule behind the lens is the front partition or wall that keeps this material from leak- ing out to the front of the eye In younger people the lens capsule is attached to the jelly-like material Surgeons like to leave the capsule in place and not have to tear the lens loose To avoid problems in younger patients the surgeon makes a tiny incision about one-eighth inch long. With special instruments he carefully removes the capsule layer in front of the lens material. He may need to irrigate the area to help wash out the smaller pieces It is not possible to suck out the hard cataract material in older persons. By that time the vitreous jelly-like material is less well attached to the capsule on the back side of the lens Commonly an inci- sion nearly an inch long is made and the whole lens structure with its front and back capsule is slipped out. There seems to be some ad- vantages in avoiding the larger incision needed to slip out the intact hard lens The large incision causes greater distortion of the outer eye leading to more astigmatism and other problems. The com- bined technique using a small ultrasonics and which doesn't re- quire the more complicated computer technique of replac- ing fluid in the lens will probably become more com- mon A decision on which of these techniques to use has to be individualized for the patient Send your questions to Dr. in care of this new- P.O.

Hard-pressed Denmark bans foreign labor COPENHAGEN Threatened with widespread unemployment as a result of the international oil squeeze the Danish government today banned import of foreign labor and moved to ease out an undetermined number of the foreign workers already here. The announcement followed a government decision Wednesday to cut deliveries of heavy fuel oil to industry by 25 per cent Denmark's dai- ly consumption of oil is an es- timated 60.000 tons There are some foreign workers already employed in Denmark. Their .work permits will not be renewed upon affecting an estimated 15.000 workers within the next six anybody. Maybe that is true tor who need to keep busy if they wish to reach a ripe old age. But let's not tell it to the bees. After a month or so of daily a little worker bee usually dies from hard work. During the flowery summer when the busy hive is at its the life expectancy of the average worker is about six weeks. During this the queen mother may lay as many as eggs every and weekdays After three wormy little larvae hatch from the eggs and the nursemaid workers begin to feed and tend After five hungry the larvae become pupae and the workers seal them in their waxy cells. There they spend about three weeks metamorphosizing them- selves into adult bees. When they after a short rest and some help from older the new brood is ready to take up active duties in the hive. As the assembly line about new workers may be added to the hive every day At the peak of the summer the hive may be home to adult a number of male an assembly line of thousands of developing youngsters plus the queen mother. During this period of frenzied hundreds of worn out workers are replac- ed every day. As summer draws to an life in the hive becomes quieter The queen lays few eggs and these broods mature in late summer and early fall. the flowers are fading and the weather grows cooler There is work to be but less of it and the later broods do not work themselves to death in a few weeks. At about this the drones are permitted to starve to death or are driven from the hive. Their brief lives end with the summer. When finally winter the queen is left with a few thousand workers Inside the the colony huddles together in a furry brown ball and honey is rationed to last until spring Perhaps or workers will survive long enough to help the queen mother to start a new colony in the spring The queen honeybee has a life expectancy of about five years Each summer she lays about most of which become adult workers who survive only a month or so During her entire a queen bee may produce a million eggs and outlive almost all of them.
