I'd be interested ...is it a 3d cad model, or a physical model?
I've worked on designing tonometers..we used Pig eyes for testing...
We used to get half a dozen at a time from the abatoir...(to see us through the week )

Interesting!

I once worked on a project to make a vibrating knife for eye surgery. The students practiced on cows' eyes.

When we delivered the vibrating knife and the teaching surgeon used it for the first time, it resulted in a TFU (you won't find this acronym in any list I've ever seen, but it nonetheless is the term he used. hint: the "T" stands for "terminal.")

I used to work just down the hall from an Opthamology Dept, and they got ox eyes (maybe a couple dozen at a time from some kind of knacker) in small styrofoam drums that somewhat resembled an ice bucket. So, one day I'm checking in my UPS packages when the bigshot Vice-President of Development comes waltzing through with some potential donors. And, she's really putting on a show-and-tell performance when, for some unknown reason, she reaches over and opens a just-arrived drum and screams. And the guests don't know what just happened (they can't see the eyeballs) and she's afraid to tell them. But, she was good - she changed gears and got them the heck outta there.

I'm curious. The responses all seem to assume that this model eye simulates the biology of the eye, something you can cut up. The ISO already has a 'eye model' (ISO-11979-2) for use in evaluating ophthalmic devices such as implantable lenses, but this model is only marginally similar to an actual eye. Is your's a model for the optical properties of the eye, the physiological/anatomical, or are you on some other track?

Hello, johnfotl. I've invited the Guest to register with CR4 and possibly post his abstract in our "Biomedical Engineering" blog. I'll let you know if this happens.
