    In vivo measurement of the average refractive index of the human crystalline lens using optical coherence tomography

    We present a method for measuring the average group refractive index of the human crystalline lens in vivo using an optical coherence tomography (OCT) system which, allows full-length biometry of the eye. A series of OCT images of the eye including the anterior segment and retina were recorded during accommodation. Optical lengths of the anterior chamber, lens, and vitreous were measured dynamically along the central axis on the OCT images. The group refractive index of the crystalline lens along the central axis was determined using linear regression analysis of the intraocular optical length measurements. Measurements were acquired on three subjects ...
