A Jewish physician Professor Katz of Petrograd has devised an operation by which the blind are able to see, according to a story printed by the Petrograd correspondent of the New York World.
All that is necessary for the operation to be successful, says Katz is that the light perception nerves are intact. In more than fifty per cent of the blind cases this condition exists. The operation includes the insertion of a celuloid cup into the socket of the eye, so that the light is reflected through it.
