Summary of "Refractive index redistribution with accommodation based on finite volume-constant age-dependent mechanical modeling."

The human lens is considered to have a gradient refractive index (GRIN) distribution. The recently developed accommodating volume-constant age-dependent optical (AVOCADO) model can accurately describe the separate GRIN distributions in the axial and radial directions. Our study uses a finite element method to simulate the accommodation process and calculate the GRIN redistribution based on the AVOCADO model for 25-, 35- and 45-year-old lenses. The parameter p describes the steepness of the GRIN profile towards the lens periphery. The results show that axial p values increase with age. Under accommodation, the axial p value increases, while the radial p value decreases. We also use a ray tracing method to evaluate the optical performance of the lens. The aim of this paper is thus to provide an anatomically finite mechanical lens model with separate axial and radial refractive index profiles for a better understanding of accommodation at different ages.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Instruments for RETINOSCOPY that determines the refractive state of the EYE, such as the degree of NEARSIGHTEDNESS; FARSIGHTEDNESS; or ASTIGMATISM. In principle, a retinoscope provides a light source to illuminate the RETINA, and then locates the aerial image of the retina in space to obtain an index of the refractive quality of the patient's lens system.

A refractive error in which rays of light entering the EYE parallel to the optic axis are brought to a focus in front of the RETINA when accommodation (ACCOMMODATION, OCULAR) is relaxed. This results from an overly curved CORNEA or from the eyeball being too long from front to back. It is also called nearsightedness.

A computer based method of simulating or analyzing the behavior of structures or components.

A biosensing technique in which biomolecules capable of binding to specific analytes or ligands are first immobilized on one side of a metallic film. Light is then focused on the opposite side of the film to excite the surface plasmons, that is, the oscillations of free electrons propagating along the film's surface. The refractive index of light reflecting off this surface is measured. When the immobilized biomolecules are bound by their ligands, an alteration in surface plasmons on the opposite side of the film is created which is directly proportional to the change in bound, or adsorbed, mass. Binding is measured by changes in the refractive index. The technique is used to study biomolecular interactions, such as antigen-antibody binding.

Chemical analysis based on the phenomenon whereby light, passing through a medium with dispersed particles of a different refractive index from that of the medium, is attenuated in intensity by scattering. In turbidimetry, the intensity of light transmitted through the medium, the unscattered light, is measured. In nephelometry, the intensity of the scattered light is measured, usually, but not necessarily, at right angles to the incident light beam.
