Pathological-optic approach of cataract and lens

Ophthalmologica. 1978;176(6):331-4. doi: 10.1159/000308724.


By weighing cataractous lenses and by scanning lenses of patients with acute diabetes with an ultrasonic A scan, it is made probable that hypermetropization in those cases is to be atributed to alterations of the refractive index of the lens.
