Paper Abstract

Laser Raman spectroscopy was used to investigate cataractogenesis from infrared sources and human senile cataract. Rabbits were exposed to radiation from a ND-YAG laser; Raman spectra were recorded and results correlated with established ultraviolet damage mechanism. Human senile lenses were also examined by Raman spectroscopy. The Raman technique appears suitable for potential clinical diagnosis.*
