    Article - En anglais



    Exposure to sunlight may be a risk factor for the development of cataract.

    The relationships between exposure to sunlight and to the ultraviolet-B (UVB) component of light and the prevalence of lens opacities were examined in the Beaver Dam Eye Study.


    Persons 43 to 84 years of age residing in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin, were examined using standardized photographic assessments of lens opacities.

    A questionnaire about medical history and exposure to light was administered.
