We have calculated corneal transparency using a theory given by Twersky and a model of Hart and Farrell. The results do not correspond with experimental observations.

  4. We do not enter into a discussion here of the problems of passing from two to three dimensions and the questions posed by introducing a scaling length which is assumed to be constant, independent of the parameters of interest. The physical significance of such a scaling length is unclear from Twersky’s work.
