Abstract

Axisymmetric nonlinear finite element models of accommodation with vitreous have been studied with respect to their effectiveness in mechanical and optical performance. All materials were assumed to be linearly elastic, vitreous and lens matrices were incompressible. Results of numerical analyses support the Helmholtz theory of accommodation.
