Posterior subcapsular cataracts developed in rabbits following injection of docosahexenoic acid. Autoxidation of docosahexenoic acid in rabbit vitreous was demonstrated by the formation of malondialdehyde and vitreous fluorescence. The onset of posterior subcapsular cataract formation was temporally correlated with declining levels of vitreous malondialdehyde.
