Abstract

In this work a finite element model for the human eye presented. Thermal analysis was done in order to capture the temperature variation in the human eye. The model was created using advance finite element program ABAQUS. In the model each of the eye's component (cornea, sclera, lens, iris, aqueous and vitreous humor) has own material property. Specific boundary conditions were used for the model. The model incorporates the interaction between eyes components. The Comparisons were done with the available experimental results. The results show that there is a temperature variation in the human eye components with the increasing the time. The front of the cornea and back of the cornea shows different temperature value. And the result shows that there is also temperature difference between the peak of the posterior surface of the cornea and the adjacent posterior surface of the cornea to the sclera.
