Senile cataract, 25 hydroxyl Vitamin D, Chemiluminescent micro particle immunoassay (CMIA)


Background: Study in correlation between Senile cataract and Serum 25-Hydroxyl Vitamin D Insufficiency.
Mean Value of vitamin -D less than 10ng/ml seen in group-1 which show severe deficiency. Mean Level
of vitamin-D in group-2 15-24 ng/ml which show mild to moderate deficiency. There was a statistically
significant difference in both groups.(p value-<0.03)
Method: 25 OH D level were examined in 300 patients who had cataract and 280 normal patients of both
sex were examined using the technology name as chemiluminescent micro particle immunoassay (CMIA).
Conclusion: In normal patients have below the reference levels while a severe insufficiency of 25-OH D
levels in cataract patients. These shows the role of 25-OH D deficiency in senilecataract patients.
