The Beaver Dam Eye Study is a population-based study of common age-related eye diseases.
During the standardized medical history, the 4926 subjects were asked whether they had ever had a chest x-ray, computerized axial tomography (CAT) scan of the head, other x-rays of the head, x-rays of the abdomen, or other diagnostic x-rays.
The eye examination included photographs of the lenses of the eyes, which were subsequently graded according to protocol.
Nuclear sclerosis and posterior subcapsular opacity were significantly associated with CAT scans.
