The eye is biomechanical pressure vessel, and mathematical and computational modeling of the posterior pole of the primate eye can be utilized to investigate the role of intraocular pressure (IOP) in the development and progression of glaucoma. The objective of this study is to validate an experimentally-derived, spectral viscoelastic characterization of scleral material properties utilizing a finite element model under cyclic loading.
