Abstract:

The earliest possible changes detectable in cataract formation are a depletion of the soluble alpha crystallin lens proteins by gel electrophoresis analysis. Rabbit lenses exposed in vivo to different power levels from CW neodymium laser 1060 nm at various power levels were used to produce the changes in vivo and in vitro. Author
