  • The work of various investigators indicates that the lens consumes oxygen and that the amount of oxygen consumption differs in different portions of the lens. Ely (1949) has shown that the capsules and nuclei of both bovine and rabbit lenses have a negligible respiration, that the cortex and epithelium are the only parts that respire, with the epithelium probably playing the dominant role in the oxygen uptake. Kinsey and Frohman (1951) from their findings on the distribution of flavoprotein… CONTINUE READING
