Axisymmetric nonlinear finite models of accommodation incorporating the posteriorly sloped force and vitreous effects have been studied by means of their effectiveness in mechanical and optical performances. All materials were assumed to be linearly elastic, vitreous and lens matrices were incompressible. The present model is subjected to certain indicated shortcomings, however, the behavior of the model is predictable, reasonable and favourably consistent with different published data, supporting the Helmholtz theory of accommodation.
