Dynamic Range of Focus of the Eye: Understanding Biomechanics and Kinematics: Part 1

    By PineDev

    A PRIMARY FOCUS IN OPHthalmic health care has been on providing solutions to help our patients “see” more clearly and curtail the effects of uncurable age-related eye diseases, such as presbyopia, cataracts, glau-coma, and age-related macular degeneration (AMD). The eye contains more than 2 million working parts and is considered the second most complex organ in the body next only to the brain.’ Considering that the muscles of the eye are the fastest and strongest in the body with a resilient capability to adjust to rapidly changing conditions, it is surprising that more in-depth neuromuscular and biomechanical constructs have not been a fundamental cornerstone of ophthalmic education.? Nonetheless, a more extensive understanding of the physiological and biomechanical mechanisms is essential to developing more anatomically congruous innovations for treatment solu-tions, as well as disease prevention.
