Model Heads and Eyes

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. 

Our hand-crafted Model Eyes can be found at some of the world’s leading technology companies, research institutes and universities.

epipole Model Heads and Eyes for Training

Optically realistic Model Heads and Eyes for training & research

Designed and manufactured to exacting standards, complete with high quality lenses, the Model Eye optically behaves as a real eye does – including creating reflex. 

Set within the Model Head(s), the Model Eyes allow staff and students alike practice their imaging technique while managing access issues.

Model Eyes: Cutting Edge Training

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. 


Available with 3mm (non-mydriatic) and 7mm (mydriatic) pupils and a range of illustrative retina image(s), designed to complement exactly what you need


The Model Head fits a standard TV or monitor mount for the ultimate in flexible positioning. Model Eyes are secured in place with magnets for maximum safety and convenience

Research Grade

Originally designed the Model Eye to test the limits of retinal imaging equipment, it’s also available with a USAF 1951 resolution target for testing resolving power of ophthalmic equipment
