Paper Abstract

The model of corneal biotissue layers and their values of optical parameters are presented. The model of the processes involved in laser thermal keratoplasty of eye biotissues is proposed, and the results of computer modeling are presented. Characteristics of optical and thermal processes and the influence of parameters of radiation and biotissues on the results of laser action are studied. The results of numerical simulations demonstrate the possibility of heating of the region in corneal stroma by a converging beam of laser radiation with a sufficient parameters.
