In this talk we will discuss the a mathematical model that describes the electromagnetic wave’s propagation through the eye’s structures in order to create a virtual OCT scan. Our model is based on time-dependent Maxwell’s equations. We use the discontinuous Galerkin method for the integration in space and a low-storage Runge-Kutta method for the integration in time. In the model we consider anisotropic permittivity tensors which arise naturally in our application of interest. We illustrate the performance of the method with some numerical experiments.
