..These equations, which closely matched the experimental results, depicted corneal stiffening with age in a form suitable for implementation in numerical simulations of ocular biomechanical behaviour. ..

..The trend for hysteresis to decrease with age is in agreement with previous clinical observations. Hysteresis was also found to increase with faster pressure application. ..

..The equation has been tested against a clinical data set obtained at Moorfields Eye Hospital involving 144 subjects, and found to produce IOP estimates that are less dependent on corneal size and age than published equations. ..

..The considerable variation in biomechanical behaviour found in this study should be useful in improving the accuracy of representing the sclera's real-life conditions in numerical simulations. ..
