Material and Methods: The study was designed as cross sectional observational study. 200 senile cataract patients scheduled for cataract surgery in the Department of Ophthalmology and 200 individuals of the same age group without cataract were selected. Mean serum sodium and potassium levels in the senile cataract group were calculated and compared with the control group. Serum sodium and potassium levels were measured by flame photometry technique. Statistical software SPSS-16 was used and… 

SERUM SODIUM AND POTASSIUM LEVELS AMONG PATIENTS WITH SENILE CATARACT AND INDIVIDUALS WITHOUT CATARACT

Serum sodium levels in patients had senile cataract were observed to be higher in comparison to the control group, while this was not found for potassium levels, indicating that diets that are rich in sodium content are a risk factor for the development of senileCataract.

It is found that any alteration in serum electrolyte concentration leads to alterations in aqueous humor’s electrolytes concentration and responsible for risk factor for development of senile cataract.

Comparison of serum sodium and potassium levels in patients with senile cataract and age-matched individuals without cataract

Diets with high sodium contents are a risk factor for senile cataract formation and dietary modifications can possibly reduce the rate of progressionCataract.

Comparative study of serum Na+ and K+ levels in senile cataract patients and normal individuals

Serum Na+ level in senile cataract patients was higher than normal individuals in this study, which might suggest that diets with high Na+ content are a risk factor for age-relatedCataract formation, as highNa+ content of the diet leads to high level of serum Na+, which in turn contributes to formation of age- related cataracts.

Serum electrolytes in senile cataract patients

Sodium and chloride may be used as markers of senile cataract formation and dietary salt restriction may help to lower the sodium and chloride levels and delay the process of cataracts formation.

It is suggested that a high-salt diet may increase the risk of posterior subcapsular cataract.

Some blood plasma constituents correlate with human cataract.

Human cataract in older age groups seems to be due to an accumulation of risk factors, even if individual mean concentrations are well within normal limits but, of course, differing significantly from the corresponding means in the control population.

Interactions between variables were found; these include age, diabetes, the use of diuretic drugs, the level of alcohol consumption and cataract, and between age, sex, plasma urea levels and theUse of different diuretics.

The proportion of adults with poor "best" visual acuity may be much less than has been estimated by the National Health Survey and the proportion with open-angle glaucoma much more than currently suspected on the basis of foreign studies.
