Subject: question re SOD and aging?

Can anyone point me to information about the cause of the hardening of the 
lens in the human eye that results in the inability to close focus?   ie, why 
you eventually need reading glasses?

And any speculation from you LE types as to whether Superoxide Dismutase 
might reverse said condition if caused by oxidative cell damage?

Please reply to me directly to avoid cluttering up Cryonet. I'll post a 
follow up later with info if I find anything interesting.
