Unsteady transport and hydration dynamics in the in vivo cornea


Journal Article

The unsteady response of the rabbit cornea to the normal periodic variations in tear tonicity which accompany the sleep-wake cycle is examined quantitatively in terms of a physical description of corneal mechanics and transport. Two different sets of experimental epithelial and endothelial flow conductivities and reflection coefficients are used, and the effect of variations in epithelial solute permeability and sodium pump rate is examined
