Quercetin, a flavonoid, is a known lens aldose reductase inhibitor. When administered orally, it causes a significant delay in the initiation and. Develoment of experimentally induced galactosaemic and naphthalene cataract. These observations support the hypothesis that in galactosaemia and diabetes, aldose reductase plays a key role in the formation of cataract. Flavonoids, like qurecetin, may be therefore useful in inhibiting the devlopment of cataract in diabetes.
