Relative contents of sodium potassium and dry matter in diabetic cataractous lenses



Relative contents of sodium potassium and dry matter in diabetic cataractous lenses



Acta Ophthalmologica 59(1): 45-49



Cataractous lenses from diabetic patients were pre-operatively divided into 3 groups according to the biomicroscopical appearance of the lenses and biochemical analyses of CNa+, CK+ and dry matter were performed. Immature cataractous lenses without anterior capsular/subcapsular opacity (ac-sco): (N = 4) CNa+ = 35 meq/kg lens water, CK+ = 164 meq/kg lens water, dry matter 34%. Immature cataractous lenses with ac-sco: (N = 12) CNa+ = 151 meq/kg lens water, CK+ = 62 meq/kg lens water, dry matter 33%. Totally opaque lens: (N = 1) CNa+ = 185 meq/kg lens water, CK+ = 12 meq/kg lens water, dry matter 19%. The concentrations of Na, K and dry matter were equal to the findings in senile nondiabetic cataractous lenses.
