Paper Abstract

Both consist of collagen fibrils, sclera is opaque whereas cornea is transparent for optical wavelengths. By employing the pseudospectral time-domain (PSTD) simulation technique, we model light impinging upon cornea and sclera, respectively. To analyze the scattering characteristics of light, the cornea and sclera are modeled by different sizes and arrangements of the non-absorbing collagen fibrils. Various factors are analyzed, including the wavelength of incident light, the thickness of the scattering media, position of the collagen fibrils, size distribution of the fibrils.
