  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

Fifteen cases of unilateral cataract in middle-aged subjects are studied. This type of cataract has been found to have the following characte-ristic features.

1. The fellow eye is practically normal in spite of far-advanced cataract in the involved eye. The ages ranged from 27 to 59, the majo-rity of cases belonging to the fifth or sixth decade of life.

2. Early history revealed little clue as to the possible presence of foregoing ocular lesions as uveitis that might serve as predisposing factor for the unilateral cataract.
