Paper Abstract

Theoretical and computer modeling approaches, such as Mie theory, radiative transfer theory, Monte Carlo simulation method were applied for tissue optics analysis in a process of its optical clearing due to refractive indices matching. CW transmittance and forward and backward scattering measurements were used for tissue structural and optical properties monitoring. As a controlled tissue samples of the human sclera were taken. As a chemical applicator-controller osmotically active trazograph solution was used. The scleral absorption and scattering spectra as well as diffusion coefficient describing the samples of the human sclera permeability to trazograph wer experimentally estimated. Presented results are general and can be applicable for description of many other fibrous tissues.
