• Background: This study was carried out in order to obtain information on galactose-containing glycoconjugates in the lens and ciliary body of human eyes with capsular glaucoma and thus on the etiopathogenesis of exfoliation syndrome. • Methods: Six formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded human eyes with capsular glaucoma and six control eyes were studied using a panel of 11 biotinylated lectins with extended binding sites to galactose- and N-acetylgalactosamine-containing glycoconjugates.
