Modelling Light Propagation in Ocular Tissues

The cornea is the transparent part of the eye’s outer sheath and the primary refractive element in the optical system of the eye. Indeed, its curved interface with the air provides three-fourths of the eye’s focusing power (the remainder being provided by the lens). Maintenance of its curvature and clarity […]
