Model Eye for Ultrasonic Biometry
The Model Eye for Ultrasonic Biometry is enlarged to a scale of 3 to 1, including the cornea, the lens and glass bodies to create a realistic human eye model for demonstrating the fundamentals of ultrasonic biometry. The biometric ratios in the human eye (distance between cornea and lens, thickness of lens, distance between lens and retina) are very well suited to demonstrating measurement using a pulse-echo method with ultrasound. With the help of an ultrasonic echoscope and a 2-MHz ultrasonic probe, typical echoes and the speed of sound can be measured. This allows the geometry of individual objects in the eye to be calculated. A lesion close to the back of the eye becomes apparent due to the diffuse nature of its echo.
