Many questions remain concerning the sources of intraocular light scatter. One approach, inversion of the empirical disability glare function, implies that refractive-index fluctuations extend over distances of tens of micrometers. Randomly placed inhomogeneities of these sizes, such as protein aggregates, are ruled out. It is argued that refractive-index fluctuations associated with the lens fiber lattice are capable of contributing significantly to intraocular scatter and that they provide… CONTINUE READING
