Abstract: Fresh calf lenses were incubated in nutritive media, to which was added ouabain and dexamethasone phosphate at concentrations of 1 X 10(-4) M. At the end of a three day incubation period, cortical opacification developed in the control series of lenses as well as those lenses incubated in both ouabain and dexamethasone phosphate. Using a light transmission device which quantitates lens opacification, it was noted that dexamethasone produced a level of cortical opacification significantly greater than that of t…
