Estimating the external force acting on the human eye lens during accommodation by finite element modelling.
Vision Res. 2006 Oct; 46(21):3642-50.VR

Abstract

Using new geometric information on the shape of the lens that has recently become available, a finite element model has been developed in order to estimate the forces that act on the lens during accommodation for a typical 29-year-old human eye. To investigate the influence of the anterior, posterior and central zonular fibres insertion regions, three models with different configurations were built. All three configurations appeared to be capable of inducing the required accommodative changes in the lens. Based on material properties from the literature, the estimated summed net force for each of the three models was approximately 0.08 N.
