The regional mechanical performance of the cornea and limbus was studied in vitro by pressure loading of 18 intact human eyes. The pressure-induced (2-100 mmHg) meridional and circumferential tangential mechanical strains of the epi-and endothelial side of the cornea were measured at the centre, the para-centre, the periphery and the limbus. Strains were computed from digital measures of distances between tiny mercury droplet markers fixed on the corneal surfaces. Corresponding in-plane… CONTINUE READING
