TitleOrbital biomechanics
PurposeThe human eye is suspended in the orbit. An interaction between pressure and tensile forces in the soft tissues keeps the eye in place, while a large range of rotational motion is enabled. To reach a better understanding of these mechanics, several approaches have been followed, ranging from visualisation of MRI-data to computational modeling based upon finite-element analysis (FEA).This presentation will discuss the current state-of-the-art and the 'hot-topics' in orbital biomechanics. An overview will be given of the factors that play a role in understanding the soft tissue biomechanics and the suspension of the eye in the orbit.
