  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

Frequently ophthalmologists see an aggregation of fine, dustlike, brown pigment granu-les on the pupillary border and lens of chronic uveitis. However, the origin of the pig-ment granules is not well understood except for a case of posterior synechia of the iris.

The present studies were performed to know whether intravitrealy injected melanin granules induce aggregation of pigment in the pupillary border and lens.

Melanin granules of the cow eye, active carbon and the artificial melanin which is con-verted from dopa by autoxidation were respectively injected into the vitreous of albino rabbits.
