Abstract: Eight human cataractous lenses extracted from eyes suffering from uveitis have been examined by transmission electron microscopy. The following changes have been demonstrated: cellular proliferation, fibrillogenesis and formation of osmiophilic, electron-dense amorphous structures. The changes were most pronounced in young lenses but had no features in common with the FEC (fibrillopathia epitheliocapsularis) syndrome.
