Abstract

An electrical model which simulates the action of the human eye is developed from experimental data and current concepts. Three fundamental parameters of the eye (volume, pressure, and time) are directly translated into analogous electrical elements. All other parameters are derived from these fundamental ones. The classical elastic Friedemoald model is compared to the viscoelastic model.
