Guest lecture Loss of Scleral Compliance during Aging

26.07.2012


Dr. Rafael Grytz from Devers Eye Institute Ocular Biomechanics Laboratory, Portland, USA, a former member of the Institute of Structural Mechanics will held a guest lecture about "";Loss of Scleral Compliance during Aging".

overview:
Glaucoma is the second leading cause of blindness. The risk to develop glaucoma is significantly increasing with age. We hypo- thesize that the changing elastic properties of the aging sclera contributes to the age- related susceptibility to glaucoma. This study aims to determine the age-related alterations in the elastic response of 40 posterior scleral shells from human donors, 20-97 years old.
