A total of 220 inmates of old people's homes, all over 60 years of age, were examined for pseudoexfoliation of the lens capsule. The incidence recorded for the age group 60-69 years was 10°/o, 70-79 years 21.3O/o and 80-89 years 32.8 "/a.

After mydriatics, pigmented floaters were seen in the aqueous humour of 61.5 O / o of the normal eyes, and 83.3 "/o of the eyes with pseudoexfoliati…
