The effect of hormones with different spectra of action on peroxidation of unsaturated fatty acids of lipids of the eye tissues was investigated. Various hormones were shown to have both an antioxidant and a prooxidant action on the sclera, cornea, and ciliary body, depending on the dose of the hormone, the duration of its action, and other conditions. The possibility that lipid peroxidation processes may participate in the development of ophthalmopathies is discussed.
