Abstract

INTRODUCTION The sclera is the outer shell and principal load-bearing tissue of the eye, and consists primarily of avascular lamellae of collagen fibers. Ninety percent of the collagen fibers in the sclera are Type I, which provide the eye with necessary mechanical strength to withstand intraocular pressure (IOP). A small hole pierces the posterior sclera… (More)
