Abstract: Purpose. To examine the relationship between metabolic syndrome and its components, diabetes mellitus, high blood pressure (BP), obesity, and dyslipidemia, with age-related cataract. Methods. A population-based sample of 2794 Malay adults aged 40 to 80 years in Singapore was used for this analysis. Cataract (n = 1268) was defined as the presence of nuclear, cortical, or posterior subcapsular (PSC) cataract, from standardized grading of lens photographs or previous cataract surgery. Metabolic syndrome was defined as the presence of ≥3 of the following components: body mass index (BMI) ≥25 kg/m2, triglycerides ≥1.7 mM, high density-lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol
