Paper Abstract

Elastic light scattering and Raman light scattering applied to the same eye-lens have been used, respectively, to extract information on the spatial variations in the intensity of scattered light and the protein content. A combination of the results allows one to obtain the distribution of the scattering coefficient, the size of the scattering particles and the molecular weight of the scattering particles. The design of the light scattering set up is such that the results can be compared with those obtained with a `Scheimpflug' camera. The increase in light scattering at the anterior and posterior cortex in young (< 20 - 30 yrs.) eye-lenses is in accordance with the theory for short-range crystalline order in eye-lenses.
