There is substantial evidence that cases of lens-induced uveitis show hypersensitivity to lens protein and that this hypersensitive state can be transferred to an experimental animal; also that lens protein in the presence of adjuvant is capable of inciting an auto-immune reaction in the guinea-pig, similar histologically to endophthalmitis phacoanaphylactica in man.
