The relationship between exposure to organic solvents and the prevalence of lens changes was studied in a group of 92 car painters and a comparison group of 92 engineers from the Finnish State Railways. Both groups were examined ophthalmologically. Among the 92 car painters, with a mean age of 34.9 years (range of 21–64 years; S.D. 10.4 years), two had been operated on for a cataract and 46 had lens changes, mainly nuclear sclerosis, clefts, lamellar separation, or cortical and subcortical… Expand

TLDR
An epidemiological study of lens opacities among steel workers found a higher prevalence of the common form of cataract was found in the heat-exposed group than in the non-exp exposed group. Expand
