PURPOSE To measure the radii of curvature of postmortem, whole, encapsulated human crystalline lenses, free of all zonular attachments, and to calculate their corresponding optical powers. DESIGN Experimental study. PARTICIPANTS Thirty human crystalline lenses from donors with a mean age of 33.6+/-14.4 years. METHODS Intact clear human crystalline lenses were obtained within an average of 21 hours of death. The lenses were removed from the eye by the contributing eye bank and shipped in… CONTINUE READING
