Two-dimensional computational model of human eye for simulating transpupillary thermotherapy process is developed and a finite volume-based numerical methodology is used. Natural convection in vitreous humor and choroidal blood perfusion showed significant effect on the temperature distribution inside the human eye. Increased thermal damage occurred in the nearby regions of retinal laser spot compared with the spot location itself, due to the convective flow of vitreous.
