In the aggregates influencing IOL biocompatibility, presence of proteins was determined to be more important than the presence of Si regarding the distribution of Ca, while the presence of Si affected the accumulation of Ca. Opacification, caused by the Ca accumulation within the lens, was found to result from Ca penetrating from lens pores.
