Abstract

Introduction: Until now, many models have been presented for optical study of the human eye. In recent years, surgery on the anterior section of the eye (such as cataract and photo-refractive surgery) has increased, so a study on the optics of the eye and evaluation of vision quality has become more important.
Material and Methods: In this article, some of these models are considered. They include models with spherical and conic-section surfaces (for cornea and lens), simple models and new models with complex surfaces.
Results: Evaluation of the optical models of the eye provides the possibility of enhancing the representation of human vision and also increasing the accuracy of surgery on the anterior section of the eye to enable higher quality vision.
