Investigating the relationship between intraocular pressure and the behavior of the lamina cribrosa (the primary site of the optic nerve damage in glaucoma) is important to insight into the pathogenesis of glaucomatous optic neuropathy. In most previous studies, unsuitable approaches were used since the lamina cribrosa was not taken as the main target. In the present study, a linear model of elastic mechanics theory on the bending of thin circular plate was developed for this purpose. The… CONTINUE READING
