  • Although cataract surgery has been performed for many centuries, technological advances now provide us with the opportunity to afford our patients vision more similar to the pre-cataract state than ever before. Advanced instrumentation and surgical techniques allow our patients to expect excellent uncorrected vision within 24 h of surgery. In addition, newer multifocal and accommodating intraocular lens (IOLs) offer the possibility of distance, near, and intermediate vision without glasses [2, 23, 32]....

  • a-Crystallin is the principal lens protein which, in addition to its structural role, also acts as a molecular chaperone, to prevent aggregation and preci-pitation of other lens proteins. One of its two subunits,aB-crystallin, is also expressed in many nonlenticular tissues, and a natural missense muta-tion, R120G, has been associated with cataract and desmin-related myopa-
