PURPOSE To demonstrate the feasibility of measuring the elasticity of intact crystalline lenses using atomic force microscopy (AFM). METHODS AFM elasticity measurements were performed on intact lenses from 18 fresh cynomolgus monkey cadaver eyes (4-10 years old, <1 day postmortem) that had been left attached to their zonule-ciliary body-sclera framework. The eyes were prepared by bonding a plastic ring on the sclera after removal of the conjunctival, adipose, and muscle tissues. The posterior… CONTINUE READING
