Titel:
Dimensions of the human sclera: thickness measurement and regional changes with axial length 
Abstract:
Scleral thickness, especially near the region of the optic nerve head (ONH), is a potential factor of interest in the development of glaucomatous optic neuropathy. Our goal was to characterize the scleral thickness distribution and other geometric features of human eyes. Eleven enucleated human globes (7 normal and 4 ostensibly glaucomatous) were imaged using high-field microMRI, providing 80 mm isotropic resolution over the whole eye. The MRI scans were segmented to produce 3-D corneoscleral sh...    »
