There are many useful longitudinal and cross-sectional epidemiological studies of how visual acuity (VA) deteriorates with age. However, few studies have evaluated age-related VA changes in normal, healthy eyes. Data from three previous studies that included VA measurements taken with logMAR charts from subjects with normal, healthy eyes were collated and(More)
Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is an emerging chronic liver disease that may lead to liver cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma. We aimed to determine the association between the prevalence of metabolic syndrome (MetS) and NAFLD severity using semi-quantitative ultrasonography (US). A total of 614 participants were recruited from the community.(More)
Ultraviolet radiation (UVR) excitation of fluorophores within the crystalline lens results in intraocular straylight. These fluorescent emissions are known to increase with age. The visual effect of this increase in fluorescent straylight has not previously been published. In this study, the visual deficit associated with UV-induced lenticular fluorescence(More)
