[126b]

Alcibiades
Yes.

Socrates
And if, again, you asked me, “What becomes present in a better condition of the eyes?”—I should answer in just the same way, “Sight becomes present, and blindness absent.” So, in the case of the ears, deafness is caused to be absent, and hearing to be present, when they are improved and getting better treatment.

Alcibiades
Correct.

Socrates
Well then, what is it that becomes present or absent when a state is improved and has better treatment and management?
