The reflectivity of human cornea and its influence on the selection of a suitable light source for a low cost tonometer
UNSPECIFIED (2002) The reflectivity of human cornea and its influence on the selection of a suitable light source for a low cost tonometer. In: Photonics Asia Symposium 2002, OCT 14-18, 2002, SHANGHAI, PEOPLES R CHINA.Full text not available from this repository.
This article introduces an experiment designed to investigate which wavelength of light is best reflected by the cornea. Results indicate that the human cornea reflects near-infrared or violet light more efficiently than it does bright visible light. Further, results indicate that at a wavelength of 580nm, the reflectivity of the cornea decreases to a minimum value of 37% given light incident on the cornea at an angle of 45degrees. A light source suitable for the detection of glaucoma has been selected based on these results, also taking into account the spectral response of a suitable photo-detector.
