Paper Abstract

An anisotropy of optical elements of the human eye is examined. A theoretical model of the corneal birefringence is considered. Ray tracing through such a model depending on different approximation of the corneal topography is calculated. In the paper photographs of the polarization patterns of the cornea in vivo with linearly polarized light are presented. Numerical and experimental results are compared and discussed.
