Scleral thickness, especially near the region of the optic nerve head (ONH), is a potential factor of interest in the development of glaucomatous optic neuropathy. Our goal was to characterize the scleral thickness distribution and other geometric features of human eyes. Eleven enucleated human globes (7 normal and 4 ostensibly glaucomatous) were imaged(More)
The biomechanical environment within the optic nerve head, important in glaucoma, depends strongly on scleral biomechanical properties. Here we use a range of measured nonlinear scleral stress-strain relationships in a finite element (FE) model of the eye to compute the biomechanical environment in the optic nerve head at three levels of intraocular(More)
