Human and rabbit ocular tissues contain high concentrations of zinc. In descending order in human globes, the metal concentration appears to be: retina-choroid, ciliary body, iris, optic nerve, sclera, cornea, and lens. Diamox does not alter the concentration of ocular zinc. In preliminary studies dithizone, a known zinc chelator, does not appear to alter(More)
A screening method using tissue culture techniques determined inertness of ocular alloplastics. Secondary rabbit kidney cells revealed the presence of toxic constituents by absence of growth or cytopathic changes, or both. The optical portions of the lenses studied were nontoxic, whereas the polyamide loops of one lens were toxic. A keratoprosthesis that(More)
