Aqueous humour samples of 12 dogs which had undergone surgery for co-existent cataract and ocularhypertension, were collected by anterior chamber centesis, immediately before the corneal incision. Theantioxidant enzyme - catalase, was estimated as an indirect measure of free-radical status of the aqueous humoursamples of the dogs under study. Since aqueous humour value for catalase was not available, it was compared tothe erythrocyte values, earlier reported in cataractous dogs, and was found very low. Findings suggest thatoxidative changes were happening in the eyes of the present study, resulting in generation of more free-radicals.Photo-oxidation would have resulted in cataract.
