Most previous experimental studies and mechanical cornea models have ignored time-dependence of the cornea’s modulus, with only a few notable exceptions [1–3]. The purpose of the present work was to evaluate the time-dependent properties of cornea tissue independent of scleral contributions in a condition that is as physiologically-relevant as possible without resorting to costly and difficult in vivo characterization. A non-contact 3-dimensional displacement mapping tool was employed to image the entire deformation field across the entire cornea in real-time during pressurization. Unlike prior inflation-based studies, the present study’s unique approach permits dynamic real-time full-field mapping of deformation during inflation for the examination of viscoelasticity, isotropy, and homogeneity.
