AIMS The aim of this study was to measure the elastic moduli of the cornea and sclera and the rigidity of the eyeball. METHODS Elastic moduli of the cornea and sclera were measured on 22 fresh intact porcine eyes using the relationship between elasticity and changes in pressure and volume applicable to pressure vessel models. Rigidity was determined from the relationship between changes in volume and intraocular pressure (IOP). Induced volume changes were up to 300 mul and within the… CONTINUE READING
