Mathematical modelling of the eye


Loss of eyesight is one of the most feared health conditions, with around 3% of the UK population living with it. There is a growing body of research by an increasing number of groups worldwide on the development of mathematical models describing the normal and pathological functioning of the eye. The aim of our research is to improve the diagnosis and prognosis for serious conditions using mathematical modelling, which can, relatively inexpensively, test the plausibility of hypothetical mechanisms and treatments.
