Operations on the Lens

  • Georg Eisner


The lens (Fig. 304) consists of an elastic capsular bag with more or less fluid contents and thus has the properties of a pressure chamber (Fig. 305). The influence of applied forces is primarily local in extent as long as the capsule is under little tension. However, if deformation has produced a generalized wall tension in the pressure chamber, the action of forces — regardless of their point of application — is transmitted to the entire system including the zonule1.
