Lens Accommodation Simulation

We are consistently working on extending our simulation capabilities from cornea-sclera-only to the full eye. Part of this process is our involvement in a EUREKA eurostars project called RayFEye, together with Rowiak GmbH and the Laser Zentrum Hannover (LZH). The goal of the project is to develop a model of the full eye, including the cornea, sclera, lens accommodation, and the retina. Ray-tracing algorithms thereby enable us to not only generate biomechanical simulations but also simulations of the patients' vision.

The model is generic and not patient-specific just yet. Nevertheless, it shows a nice match in accommodative amplitude for both young and old eyes. The model can be used as a sand-box to develop and test novel treatment methods in the young and old lens.
