    Abstract

    The study was undertaken to determine the different concentrations of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G-6-PD) in anterior subcapsular and mixed cataractous lenses. In both types of cataractous lenses an increased concentration of G-6-PD was observed in 41-50 year age groups and a lower concentration of G-6-PD was noted in 61 year and above age groups. Cataractous lenses of females have a higher content of G-6-PD than males. In anterior subcapsular cataractous lenses, a lower concentration of G-6-PD was noted than in mixed lenses.
