Abstract
The comparison method of color coordinates measurements for estimation of the optical anisotropy of tissue is suggested. The anisotropy of form of fibrous tissue was measured, it makes (Delta) n equals 0.001 for both types of studied tissues. We have suspected that optics of the muscle tissue is similar to optical properties of a uniaxial crystal, which optic axis is parallel to fibrils of a tissue. Due to more complicated structure scleral tissue optics is similar to optics of a biaxial crystal. The estimated value of an optical anisotorpy of the clarified sclera allowed us to evaluate the mean length of collagen fibrils of about 2 mm at mean radius of fibrils of 50 nm.
