Abstract: The purpose of this study was to investigate which factors (including age, sex, grade of cataract, diabetes mellitus (DM), pseudoexfoliation, glaucoma, and atopy) are correlated with thickening and/or multilamellar appearance of the anterior lens capsule. Seventy-two anterior lens capsules were obtained during cataract surgeries. They were fixed, embedded in paraffin, and stained with Periodic acid-Schiff (PAS) and Masson-Trichrome. We measured thickness of the anterior capsules on microscopic photographs. In addition, multilamellar appearance of the anterior capsules was graded by an experienced ophthalmic pathologist and scored (0-3.0). By multiple regression analysis we evaluated whether the seven factors described above were correlated with thickness and/or multilamellar appearance of the anterior capsules. Thickness of the anterior capsule was correlated with DM and age (p=O.O095 and p= O.O138, respectively) . Multilamellar score was significantly correlated with age (p<O.OOO1) . Both had no significant relationships with other factors. This is the first report that showed the above mentioned relationships with multiple regression analysis.
