    Abstract

    Zinc concentrations in aqueous humour and serum were determined by means of atomic absorption spectrophotometry in 11 patients with cataract. The zinc content of the aqueous humour was found to be considerably lower than the corresponding serum values. From this finding it is suggested that aqueous humour does not serve as a likely route of delivery of zinc to the cornea.
