A simple mathematical model for diffusion of hydrogen within the retina has been developed. The model consists of three, well-mixed, one dimensional layers that exchange hydrogen via a diffusion process. A Fourier series method is applied to compute the hydrogen concentration. The effect of important parameters is examined and discussed. The results may contribute to an understanding of the hydrogen clearance technique to estimate blood flow. A two dimensional numerical method for the hydrogen diffusion is also presented. It is shown that the predominant features of the process are captured quite well by the simpler model.
