Recent work has shown that cyclic stresses from accommodation may induce changes in resistance to aqueous outflow through the trabecular meshwork. We developed a finite element model of the whole globe to examine changes in stress due to radial forces produced by the ciliary muscle. The mean equivalent stresses in the trabecular meshwork decreased significantly during accommodation.
