A subcutaneous injection of sodium selenite (30 umol/kg body weight) in 10—day old rats produced a cataract within 72 hours. Lens opacification was preceded by a 15% decrease in ATP content. Lens ATP did not fully recover to control concentrations by 11 days post—injection. A moderate correlation existed between lens weight and total ATP content in control lenses
