A simple finite element 2D model of the human eye is developed to calculate the steady-state temperature distribution. The mathematical model of the eye is based on the Pennes bio-heat transfer equation. Problem is solved using the weak formulation and the Galerkin-Bubnov procedure. The study was performed to determine the effects of various values of thermal conductivity of lens on temperature distribution inside human eye and also the effects due to changes in ambient temperature and blood temperature
