The authors present the results of determination of the level of free fatty acids in the serum and aqueous in patients with a senile cataract (23 persons), with cataract and glaucoma (9 persons), complicated post-uveitis cataract (10 persons) and diabetic cataract (10 persons). The level of the free fatty acids in senile cataract was significantly lower in the aqueous in comparison with the serum. Their content in senile cataract was significantly lower in comparison with cataract and glaucoma and with complicated cataract.
