The technique of quasi-elastic light scattering spectroscopy or photon correlation spectroscopy has been used to non-invasively monitor changes in the lens of the eye which could lead to lens opacification and cataract development. We have made quasi-elastic light scattering measurements from the eyes of normal and cholesterolemic rabbits. This report describes an exploratory investigation of the effects of a high cholesterol diet on the lens of the rabbit eye. The goal in making these measurements was to provide a non-invasive assessment of systemic atherosclerotic involvement in these rabbits.
