The shapes of two human lenses of different ages (27 and 46 years old) were altered by applying a stretching force to the ciliary muscle. The force was in the outward radial direction and was produced by an electronically driven stretching instrument which is described. The lenses were photographed for different degrees of stretch, and their anterior and posterior curvatures analysed. All curves could be fitted to second order polynomial functions. The posterior curvatures did not appear to… CONTINUE READING
