Metabolic cataract

Metabolic cataract is related to the metabolism of lens. Due to the increase of blood glucose, the glucose content of lens increases, resulting in the increase of aldose reducing plum activity, the glucose is transformed into sorbet, and sorbitol accumulates in the crystal body, which increases the osmotic pressure, the lens absorbs water, forms fiber swelling and degeneration, and finally produces turbidity.
