Abstract

This study reports an investigation of a case of art ability in a child blind from birth until two months before the first picture was produced last December. The defective vision was caused by congenitally imperfect visual apparatus including nystagmus and complete double cataract. The latter was subjected to a series of operations mostly of the needling type with the expectation that the fluids would clear up the cataract substance. Not finding any reaction of this type developing, the surgeon resorted to the expedient of removing both natural lenses, thereby giving the subject a fair degree of vision through the aid of two sets of special cataract glasses, one for ordinary vision and one for reading. The nystagmus still persists without observable improvement.
