Finite element models of scleral creep in form-deprivation myopia

Academic Article


  • In this study, finite element (FE) models of sceral globes were developed that contained creep properties obtained from three shrews subject to monocular form-deprivation. Model predicted axial elongations resulting from a realistic intraocular pressure were compared with measured values to determine whether creep could account for excessive myopic elongations. Creep properties were reduced anteriorly in some models and predicted elongations were further compared to measured elongations.
