    Abstract

    This study aimed to measure the refractive index values along the optic axes of adult bovine lenses. An optic fibre reflectometric sensor was used for this purpose, Seventeen lenses were examined and over the weight range studied there were no apparent age-related trends in the index gradient. The peak index values varied from 1.432 to 1.442. There was a greater variation in the edge index values, which may have reflected differences in hydration on lens surfaces or may be indicative of a slight decrease in surface index with age.
