**Figure 2. **The Dry weight percentage of Wet weight as a function of age. The data from lenses older than 2 years since vesicle closure
can be described by the equation, %Dry weight/Wet weight=30.77 (±0.20) + 0.036 (±0.004)*A_{b} (R^{2}=0.22, p<0.0001: n=286). For lenses <2 years, the equation is %Dry weight/Wet weight=18.9 (±1.38) + 7.9 (±1.51)*A_{b} (R^{2}=0.71, p=0.0003). The broken line represents the linear regression fit for >3 years.
