Abstract

Human and rabbit ocular tissues contain high concentrations of zinc. In descending order in human globes, the metal concentration appears to be: retina-choroid, ciliary body, iris, optic nerve, sclera, cornea, and lens. Diamox does not alter the concentration of ocular zinc. In preliminary studies dithizone, a known zinc chelator, does not appear to alter ocular zinc concentration as well. The role of this metal in ocular tissue requires further clarification.
