Abstract:
Drug-induced cataract in the rat can be classified into 2 main types: acute reversible opacities and permanent cataracts. The permanent cataracts are initiated either at the equator or the poles of the lens. It is suggested that acute and chronic forms of drug-induced toxic effects on the lens are expressed by these changes.
