Continuous Gradient Index and Shell Models of the human Lens
Because of the complexity of tracing rays through a gradient refractive index medium, the human eye’s lens is sometimes approximated by a shell structure with constant refractive index within shells. In the shell model, power arises from a combination of an axial variation in index and the curvatures of the shell surfaces. We develop an equation which gives the power due to the gradient index of the lens, and use this to choose shell models that have the same power as the continuous gradient index model. Some types of shell models are described and evaluated.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
