BACKGROUND/AIMS The authors investigated the concentrations of 8-isoprostaglandin F(2a), a marker of oxidative stress in vivo, and ascorbic acid, a protectant against oxidative damage, in the aqueous humour of patients with exfoliation syndrome (XFS) and cataract and compared the results with those in age matched patients with cataract, but without XFS, to determine whether XFS is associated with increased oxidative stress. METHODS Aqueous humour was aspirated at the beginning of… CONTINUE READING
