The Model Eye is an optical replica of the human eye. It can be used for training medical students to use ophthalmoscopes and hand-held fundus cameras. It’s also found use at some of the world’s leading technology companies, research institutes and universities.
Water-filled and with high quality lenses, optically it behaves as a real eye does – including creating reflex. Set within the Model Head, it allows students to practice their imaging technique while managing access issues. Different pupil diameters, refractive errors and printed retina images can be selected for ever more challenging educational examinations.
Going far beyond the painted ping-pong balls and plastic lenses seen in many training models, the Model Eye optics are based on the Gullstrand-Le Grand Schematic Eye. Water replicates the refractive index of the vitreous, while high-precision coated glass lenses reproduce the corneal shell and eye lens. Various designs of high resolution retina patterns and images are available.
