Age-Related Changes in Human Ciliary Muscle
This study confirms previous reports that the human ciliary Muscle retains its ability to contract throughout the lifespan, however, the ciliary muscle also displayed age-related changes, which may be partly accounted for by the forces exerted from the aging lens and zonules.
Methionine intake in rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss), relationship to cataract formation and the metabolism of methionine.
Analysis of the weight gain and food efficiency data showed the methionine requirement to be not more than 0.76% of the diet (1.9% of dietary protein) and eye lenses of the trout given these diets demonstrated that, if abnormality of the lens is to be avoided, a higher concentration of dietary methamphetamine is needed than that required to maximize growth.

Matrix metalloproteinase inhibitors suppress transforming growth factor-beta-induced subcapsular cataract formation.
It is demonstrated that TGFbeta-induced E-cadherin shedding in the lens is mediated by MMPs and that suppression of this phenomenon might explain the mechanism by which MMPIs inhibit ASC plaque formation.
Inducing Myopia, Hyperopia, and Astigmatism in Chicks
Preliminary results suggest that accommodation is not likely involved at this stage of refractive development because the accommodative mechanism can cope with cylindrical defocus, and all spherical refractive errors produced using the goggle system appear to result from alterations in vitreous chamber depth.

An action spectrum for in vitro UV-induced cataract using whole cultured lens is established and is comparable to published in vitro (with isolated lens epithelial cells) and in vivo action spectra.
