9780412360503: Cataract: Biochemistry, Epidemiology and Pharmacology

Cataract is the major cause of blindness in man throughout the world. It is usually dealt with by surgery but surgery is expensive and may lead to other ocular damage. Apart from surgery one might hope to prevent cataracts or to cure them, but these approaches require a much greater understanding of the structure and metabolism of the lens and of its weaknesses and strengths. The emphasis of this book is on recent findings.

Review:

The book is readily read and should become widely known - Acta Ophthalmological
; excellent review - The Lancet
; A nicely judged and readable living history - New Scientist
; I recommend this book to anyone who has an interest in either cataract or just the normal workings of the lens - Current Eye Research
; extremely useful as a source of reference for both undergraduates and postgraduates with a special interest - Opthal Physio

Cataract is the major cause of blindness in man throughout the world. It is usually dealt with by surgery but surgery is expensive and may lead to other ocular damage. Apart from surgery one might hope to prevent cataracts or to cure them, but these approaches require a much greater understanding of the structure and metabolism of the lens and of its weaknesses and strengths. The emphasis of this book is on recent findings. The first chapter deals with the normal lens and its structure, cellular composition, metabolism and proteins. In the following chapter the ageing of the lens will be discussed, and the third chapter discusses the epidemiology of cataract emphasizing the size of the problem of cataract and the associated risk factors.
