We present experimental results of investigation of the optical properties of the human eye sclera controlled by administration of osmotically active chemical, such as 40%-glucose solution. Administration of the chemical agent induces diffusion of matter and as a result equalization of the refractive indices of collagen and ground material. Results of the experimental study of influence of the glucose solution on the absorption and scattering properties of human sclera are presented. In vitro reflectance and transmittance spectra of the human sclera samples were measured by commercially available spectrophotometer CARY-2415 in the spectral range from 400 to 1800 nm. The reduced scattering coefficient of human sclera samples is significantly decreased under action of the osmotical solution were demonstrated.
