AbstractA simple, parametric adaptive model of the refractive index distribution of the ex vivo crystalline lens is presented. It assumes conicoid (or nonrevolution quadric in 3D) iso-indical surfaces, concentric with the external surfaces of the lens. The model uses a minimum number of internal structural parameters, while the shape of the iso-indical surfaces adapts automatically to the external geometry. In this way, it is able to adapt and fit individual distributions as well as adapt to the changes of the lens shape and structure with age and accommodation. The model is fit to experimental data for individual eyes spanning ages 7 to 82 years, where for each eye the crystalline lens dimensions and iso-indical index data are known. The analysis demonstrates that only one age-dependent structural parameter is needed to replicate the internal iso-indical index structure, given age-dependent models for the external surfaces. An age-dependent-parameter global model is derived and is shown to predict age-dependent changes in the ex vivo lens power and longitudinal spherical aberration with age.
