Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Poster)


The human eye is one of the important and sensitive organs in the human body. The study of human eyes provides a great challenge for the fields of mathematical medicine and engineering. In the current work, a number of the human eye problems are proposed, which are analysed by examining the mathematical behaviour of the governing equations. Examples include (i) Mathematics of Primary Open Angle Glaucoma (POAG), (ii) Mathematics of Retinal Detachment, (iii) Mathematics of Scleral Buckles and (iv) Mathematics of Tonometry. The aims of this study are to develop realistic mathematical models in order to enhance our understanding of the functions and possible defects of the human eye, and to illustrate how changes in both the fluid and solid mechanics of the eye contribute to the development of pathological states. In conclusion, this study will help to develop high level analytical and computational knowledge in solving complex mathematical medicine problems.
