Abstract

Endemic fluorosis is a chronic crippling skeletal and dental disease caused by ingestion or inhalation of large amounts of fluoride. Although the prevalence of this disease has decreased considerably, it still occurs in some parts of the world. Our province Isparta is a naturally occurring endemic fluorosis area. The aim of this study is to investigate the ocular manifestations of the disorder in a group of patients with fluorosis.
