Fluid mechanics in glaucoma surgery
Glaucoma is a blinding condition characterised by poor outflow of fluid leading to its excessive accumulation and high pressure in the eye. Glaucoma surgery aims to reduce this high eye pressure by creating alternative channels for the outflow of fluid from the eye. We are using engineering approaches to analyse the fluid mechanics of I will be modelling the types of surgery using animal, physical and computational models and also use image processing techniques and ocular coherence tomography to analyse and then improve their flow characteristics. The eventual outcome of this PhD will be to provide a rational method for improving the surgical procedures as well as new strategies for intervention.
