Ocular Biomechanics

Eyes are organs of the visual system which has a remarkable structure, with biomechanics involved in many of its functions. The eye transduces light, and we usually do not think of it as a biomechanical structure. It is actually a pressurized, thick-walled shell that has an internal and external musculature, a complex internal vascular system, devoted fluid production and drainage tissues, and a variety of specialized fluid and solute transport systems. Biomechanics is mainly involved in accommodation, as well as in common eye disorders such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, myopia, and presbyopia.
