Biomechanics of the Eye
The eye is a complex structure and subjected to mechanical loadings from intraocular pressure, cerebrospinal fluid pressure, and extraocular muscles. Understanding the biomechanics of the eye is essential for clarifying the mechanisms of biomechanically related eye diseases such as glaucoma, and thus can help develop better methods for early detection and treatment, and with these to preserve vision.
Below I highlight some of my past and ongoing projects.
