making a serious study and appli

"My facilities are by no means
elaborate. In fact, just myself
and a nurse have been working
on this project here." he said.
"But after several trials, we are
convinced any eve surgeon with
a 'feel' for color can do the job."
He described the case of the stu

one tattooing operation to give the
eye a normal color. !
Small discomfort this disap
pearing within one or two days
is felt by the patient. As some
have light sight in the damaged
eye. the patients are placed in a
darkened room after treatment
to prevent any visual disturb
ance. Tattooing discomfort is less
bothersome after the first treat
ment, said the specialist.

search experts say tattooing may
improve the sight in some partly
damaged eyes like those over
which a growth may distort the
entrance of light. This tattooing,
they said in a report, has the effect
of increasing light by obstructing
some annoying rays that reach the
seeing portion of the eye.
