Abstract:Relations among handedness, eye dominance, and lateralisation in the formation of cataract were investigated in 35 male and 21 female patients with cataract. In right-handed patients, cataracts formed earlier in the right eyes than in the left eye; this was reversed in left-handed patients. For both right- and left-eye dominant patients, cataracts formed earlier in the dominant eye.
