Abstract

Cataract is one of change in human aging process, generally the lens become clouding and disturb normal vision of every individuals. The routine biochemical analysis shows, there is significant changes in blood parameters between normal and cataract population that were reported by many previous experiments but study related to routine biochemical parameters and its phenomenon were not known among different types of cataract. Hence, a study was planned to understand the relationship among the different types cataract population among Indian ethnics to fill-up the lacuna that could facilitate the prevention of those types by simply identifying them using routine biochemical analysis. About 25 samples in each group were planned. Biochemical data were retrieved from medical records and analyzed by statistical tools, One way ANOVA followed by an ad hoc Tukey's Multiple Comparison Test (P < 0.05) to compare variances among the four experimental groups, they are Cortical, Nuclear Sclerotic, Posterior Subcapsular and Mixed types. Results indicated that there is no characteristics significance among different types of cataract in serum biochemical parameters analysed. This study suggest that, there is a need to identify some simple markers from blood samples and exploring the fact behind the appearance of these markers which may be useful for diagnostic and prevention systems of health care market.
