 (4) How does the PRESSURE work on the lens?

 

1.  The UNREASONABLE POWER

 

By the UNREASONABLE POWER, all phenomena of wedge-shaped cataract begin as a collapse of the cell on the equator.

 

2.   Parts of the lens which receive the destructive power

 

 <Pressure[a]>

The PRESSURE presses the cells on the equator directly. This pressure proceeds to the center of the nucleus. The cells are sandwiched between the capsule and the nucleus. If I say this more correctly, those cells are sandwiched between the capsule and the cortex. We refer to this pressure as gPressure[a].h (Fig.4-1, 4-2)

<Pressure[b]>

The PRESSURE put on the lens equator travels through the layers of lens fiber cells to the regions of the anterior and posterior poles. This pressure does not proceed to the center of the nucleus, only passes through fiber cells. Lens fiber cells are not caught by this pressure. We refer to this pressure as gPressure[b].h (Fig.4-3, 4-4)

<Pressure[c]>

The capsule puts the pressure on epithelial cells and fiber cells in the anterior polar region. I think in the posterior polar region that the capsule provides the lifting power to the lens cortex, not the pressure. We refer to this lifting power as gPressure[c].h (Fig.4-5)

<Pressure[d]>

In the anterior polar region, the capsule receives pressure from the lens cortex which is pushed forwards by Pressure[a] and Pressure[b]. At the same time, the anterior capsule presses the epithelial cells and cortex towards the nucleus as repulsion. We refer to this pressure as gPressure[d].h Due to this pressure, epithelial cells around the anterior pole are sandwiched between the capsule and the cortex. This pressure is repulsion for Pressure[a] and Pressure[b]. (Fig.4-5)
