  1. Concentration of advanced glycation end products in control lenses and treated lenses. CML: carboxymethyllysine. HI: hydroimidazolone. CML and HI were measured by ELISA and pentosidine and argpyrimidine were measured by fluorescence HPLC . *Absorbance units. **pmol/μmole amino acid. N denotes number of lens pairs.
