Population characteristics The Rotterdam Study is a population-based prospective study of subjects aged 55 years or older [S1,S2]. Collection of eye (iris) colour data and purification of DNA have been described in detail previously [S3]. In brief, each eye was examined by slit lamp examination by an ophthalmological medical researcher, iris color was graded by standard images showing various degrees of iris pigmentation and categorized into blue, brown and non-blue / non-brown called here… CONTINUE READING
