Comparison of the Accommodation Theories of Coleman and of Helmholtz by Finite Element Simulations

Rudolf Guthoff, Thom Terwee, Klaus-Peter Schmitz & Heiner Martin
Purpose: The accommodation process of the human eye is still a controversial subject. Coleman assumes that the lens, together with the zonula fibers, forms a diaphragm which is held in a catenary shape due to the pressure difference between the aqueous and vitreous body of the lens. The aim of the paper is to compare the results of two simulations (according to the Helmholtz and to the Coleman theories) with ultrasonographic data. Methods: An axisymmetric...
