To provide an interactive dynamic biomechanical dual optical mathematical model demonstrating visual changes during accommodation.
A new model utilizing mathematic, biomedical engineering, kinesiology and biophysics applications is proposed. The effects of biomechanical connective tissue stressors on the ocular and optical system were formulated. A model for the correlation of the effects of age-related changes on this system was also analyzed. Specific focus on the ocular organ stress related to scleral structural integrity and the implications of translating / damping variations during static and dynamic phases of accommodation were studied. Parameters assessed were intraocular pressure, internal dynamic and static forces among others. A dual optical power equation was incorporated to determine the visual path variables and resultant visual performance. Biomechanical and optical dysfunction are correlated to ocular stress.
An innovative dynamic model is proposed for the optimization of visual performance predictability. Mathematical proofs with scientific application are presented introducing new perspectives for the utilization and application of algorithmic models to produce bioptic visual performance outcomes.
Preliminary results utilizing a biomechanical model combined with a bioptic algorithm shows promise to be a viable model in providing a clinical interactive functional model for the purpose of enhancing predictability for rehabilitation, surgical interventions and functional visual performance outcomes in the ageing patient.
