Paper Abstract

The birefringence of the human eye with the use of the polarized light have been investigated. The experiments were conducted in an eye clinic on patients eyes in vivo. A video camera was focused on the iris of the non-dilated pupil. The polarized light beam that passed twice through the cornea and is scattered from the iris of the human eye, generates a polarized pattern on that iris. Such patterns were recorded and analyzed. The results which contribute to better understanding of the cornea behavior are discussed.
