Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) in Ophthalmology

The behavior of fluids can be described by the Navier–Stokes equations—a set of partial differential equations. The human body is characterized by a high concentration of fluids so a reasonable thought is to describe certain functions with the assistance of computational fluid dynamics (CFD). Computational fluid dynamics is one of the techniques of fluid mechanics that uses numerical methods and algorithms to investigate and solve problems that involve fluid flow.1 Using CFD, one can assemble a computational model that represents a structure. Application of the fluid flow in physics and chemistry to this virtual model will yield a guess of the fluid dynamics and related physical incidents.
