Figure 1. Effect of extracapsular lens extraction on protein content (A), total antioxidant capacity (B) and ascorbic acid concentration (C) of the aqueous humor. Protein is reported as mg/ml, antioxidant capacity as time of induction in minutes, and ascorbic acid in µM. *P < 0.05 compared to the value before surgery (ANOVA followed by the Tukey-Kramer test). Control (lozenges, N = 14); operated (squares, N = 14).
