An analttically solvable model that considers the elasticity of the cornea is developed for use in the current and novel corneal refractive surgery procedures. The model assumes that the cornea is a thin spheroid shell with an elastic response to intraocular pressure. The value of the Young's modulus of the post-operative cornea and its dependence on the geometric parameters of the ablation zone are estimated employing "best-fit" approach to nomograms currently used in corneal refractive… CONTINUE READING
