Paper Abstract

It is shown experimentally and theoretically that due to interaction of totally or partially coherent light beams with such tissues as the human eye sclera and skin which undergo the refractive indices matching the collimated and total transmission, diffuse reflection and speckle structure of transmitted beams are changing in accordance with transition from multiple to low-step scattering. The scleral samples in a final stage of tissue optical clearing have the same properties as an optical retarder.
