Ethier, C. Ross

Eyes matter – vision loss is consistently rated as one of the most feared disabilities and blindness imposes huge social and economic costs. Good human vision requires, among other processes, biomechanical homeostasis within the eye itself. In this talk I will discuss the role of biomechanics and mechanobiology in several ocular conditions and processes: emmetropia (the development of the eye to achieve a sharp image on the retina), secondary cataract and glaucoma. The emphasis will be on describing open clinical and basic science problems in ocular biomechanics.
