This video begins with studying an eye model and identifying the main structures. Next, a cow eye is dissected and the pertinent structures are identified including: tear gland, cornea, sclera, iris, pupil, optic nerve, lens, retina, choroid, vitreous humor, fovea, blind spot, aqueous humor, muscles, fat, fascia, and tapetum.
Are you wanting to do dissections and don’t know where to start? Are you NOT wanting to do dissections but looking for something else to try instead? These two different lab activities can be used alone or in tandem, depending on your equipment and needs.
Eye model (or reference illustrations of the eye)
Cow Eye(s), scissors, probes, (scalpels)
