About 80 percent of glucose used by the lens is metabolized anaerobically by the glycolytic pathway to produce lactic acid and adenosine triphosphate (ATP). A small proportion of lens glucose may be metabolized via oxidative Krebs’ citric acid cycle which is 18 times more efficient in producing ATP than glycolysis (Fig. 6). About 15 Biochemistry of the lens 27 percent of the glucose consumed by the lens is metabolized by the pentose or hexose monophosphate shunt. Although this pathway produces no energy in the form of ATP it does provide five carbon sugars (pentoses) for the synthesis of RNA and NADPH to maintain glutathione in a reduced state.
