Abstract
The cornea is the outermost segment of the eyeball. Due to its lamellar structure the cornea indicates the optical anisotropy and effect of birefringence. In this study, the corneal birefringence properties have been investigated by numerical simulations and experimental measurements. A theoretical model of the corneal birefringence is considered. Ray tracing through such a model depending on different approximations of the corneal topography is calculated. In the paper photographs of the polarization patterns of the cornea in vivo with linearly polarized light are presented. Numerical and experimental results are compared and discussed.
