    Quantitative assessment of corneal viscoelasticity using optical coherence elastography and a modified Rayleigh–Lamb equation

    We demonstrate the use of a modified Rayleigh–Lamb frequency equation in conjunction with noncontact optical coherence elastography to quantify the viscoelastic properties of the cornea. Phase velocities of air-pulse-induced elastic waves were extracted by spectral analysis and used for calculating the Young’s moduli of the samples using the Rayleigh–Lamb frequency equation (RLFE). Validation experiments were performed on 2% agar phantoms ( n = 3 ) and then applied to porcine corneas ( n = 3 ) in situ . The Young’s moduli of the porcine corneas were estimated to be ∼ 60     kPa with a shear viscosity ∼ 0.33     Pa ⋅ s . The results demonstrate ...
