Prevalence of lens opacities in surgical and general population.
The distribution and prevalence oflens opacities were examined and compared among three general population-based groups and a group that underwent cataract surgery.
The population-based groups comprised subjects from the Framingham Eye Survey, the NationalHealth and Nutrition Examination Survey, and the study of watermen in Maryland.
Comparison among these groups revealed similar frequencies of lens opacities among age groups, with slightlyhigher rates for older individuals in the watermen study population.
