Abstract: Realistic mathematical models are of great importance for studying the optical performance of the human eye. Light propagation algorithms provide robust methods to calculate field distributions inside a homogeneous medium, and thus they can be applied to the study of light patterns inside the anterior and posterior chambers of the eye. Dealing with real eyes implies using very short propagation distances together with highly refractive power surfaces. Thus, the general solutions of the field equation are used instead of paraxial Fresnel solutions. Conditions of application and sampling conditions of the method are clearly stated here. Numerical evaluation of the different refractive surfaces is also analysed. The main result is that a complete algorithm to obtain light patterns at any axial distance inside the eye is proposed. The method uses real corneal measures and axial distances together with crystalline models. Statistical results and individual predictions show the validity of the model. Application of the method is illustrated with the study of a bifocal intraocular lens.
