Abstract

The existing temperature different between the cornea and the pupil induces the aqueous humour (AH) to circulate in the anterior chamber (AC). The buoyancy forces produced by the temperature gradient has driven the AH to flow. Previous studies have shown that cornea indentation changes the structure of the AC. This imply that the cornea indentation may change the fluid flow behaviour in the AC. A mathematical model of AH flow has been developed in order to analyse the fluid mechanics concerning the indentation of the cornea. Naiver-Stokes equations is used to describe the flow of AH in the AC. The governing equations have been solved numerically using finite element method. The results show that the cornea indentation has slow down the circulation the AH in the AC.
