Abstract

A statistical analysis based on a direct summation of electric fields scattered by individual fibrils is developed to calculate corneal scattering from the fibril distributions shown in electron micrographs. Unlike previous analyses, the method of direct summation of fields can be used for swollen and scarred corneas as well as normal corneas. The method is tested by applying it to the case of the normal rabbit cornea. The results are in good agreement with those obtained using the radial distribution formulation.
