Aggregation of the lens proteins to form high molecular weight clusters is a major contributing factor in age-onset nuclear cataract [Benedek, G. B. (1971) Theory of transparency of the eye. Appl. Optics, 10, 459-473]. This aggregation occurs continually throughout life and contributes to an exponential increase, as a function of age, in the intensity of the light backscattered out of the lens. The time constant deltaT for this exponential increase in human populations is a valuable index… CONTINUE READING
