Abstract

Intraocular light scatter is modeled through a stratified medium. It is shown that the eye lens possesses properties of an interference filter. In conditions that may mimic opacification, as found with cataract formation, such a filter may have stop zones with reflectance up to 1 in the band of visible light.
