Abstract : Irradiated animals were followed clinically by examination with the slit-lamp biomicroscope and indirect ophthalmoscope. Laser-induced cataracts were extracted using a cryoprobe and electrophoretic analysis performed on the lens proteins. The clinical course and characteristics of laser-induced lens opacities and of the accompanying ophthalmic sequelae are described. An alteration in the electrophoretic mobility of the lens proteins of laser-induced cataracts is presented. (Author)
