Abstract : In this report, we outline the development of an anatomically accurate, 3-D finite element model of the human eye for use in fluid-structure interaction studies to assess blast-loading effects on the Soldier. The model includes all main intraocular components: the corneo-scleral tissue shell, the lens, the zonule fibers and the ciliary body, the retina, the choroid, a detailed model of the optic nerve head), and the surrounding orbital/tissue complex. The intraocular fluid (anterior aqueous and posterior vitreous) is also included for means of fluid-structure interaction assessment.
