PURPOSE Ophthalmologic examinations were conducted on atomic bomb (A-bomb) survivors 55 years after exposure. MATERIALS AND METHODS A-bomb survivors who had been exposed before 13 years of age at the time of the bombings in 1945 or who had been examined in a previous study between 1978 and 1980. The examinations, conducted between June 2000 and September 2002, included slit-lamp examination, digital photography and a cataract grading system for three parts of the lens (nucleus, cortex and… CONTINUE READING
