  • Look Inside

We reviewed the incidence of cataract and background factors in 890 eyes of 445 persons who underwent health-check program for adults. The series comprised 287males and 158 females. The age ranged from 21 to 84 years, average 50.4 years. Persons in the age group of forties and fifties were the most frequent. Cataract was detected in 252 persons (56.5%). It was slightly more frequent in females and increased in frequency along with advance of age. Cortical cataract was the most frequent at about 70% of the total. The presence of cataract was related neither with diabetes, systemic hypertension nor anemia.
