Abstract

Ageing changes to the various components of the accommodative system of the eye lens contribute to the loss of focusing power. The relative contributions of each ageing component, however, are not well defined. This study investigates the contribution of geometric parameters and material properties on accommodation, simulated using models based on human lenses aged 16, 35, and 48 years. Each model was tested using two different sets of material properties and a range of zonular fiber angles and was compared to results from in vivo measurements. The geometries and material parameters of older and younger lens models were interchanged to investigate the role of shape and material on accommodative capacity. Results indicate that geometry has the greater role in accommodation.
