Changes in the refractive index of lens fibre membranes during maturation--impact on lens transparency.


PURPOSE Local variations in refractive index are the physical cause of light scattering in a material or tissue and also induce phase changes of propagating light waves. The goal of this study was to analyse local differences in refractive index by phase contrast microscopy of sections of human lenses. METHODS Refractive index was estimated by immersion… (More)
