RE: lens

From:"Georger, Mary"

Most  intraocular lens are made of a high impact plastic that dissolve quite
nicely in Chloroform. I used to process the eyes by hand up to clearing,
dissolve the lens in Chloroform and then put them on the processor for the
rest of the run from Xylene through paraffin.
Perhaps your friendly Ophthalmology clinic can give you a few to try. Good
