The walk-in eye model

The walk-in eye model provides clear information about the structure and function of this sensory organ. The three-dimensional representations of the anatomy and the different clinical pictures show variations on well-understood and are clearly understandable comprehensible especially for laypersons.

The walk-eye model will provide information about retinal detachment, it is a dry macular degeneration as well as a wet macular degeneration, shows retinal tumor and ocular thrombosis and provides information about glaucoma.Half of all people statistically there is a limitation of vision - also many diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure or migraine also affect the eyes. One can compare the eye with a photo camera. The lens system of the eye comprising a rigid front lens, the cornea, and an adjustable lens, the eye lens. The task of the panel accepts the iris (Iris) image carrier is the retina and the case of the eye is the sclera. The eye is supplied by the choroid.

From the outside, in the first eye, the iris, the colored different for each person. Through the Iris light falls into the interior of the eye, where it meets the eye lens. This takes place - depending on whether we look into the distance or proximity - by itself together or pulled apart. It is a sharp image of the retina on, lining the eyeball from the inside. The "seeing" on the retina is taken over by two different sensory cell types, the photoreceptors: the cones and the rods. See cones in color, chopsticks in black and white. The density of photoreceptors on the retina is not the same everywhere, but there is a place sharpest vision (the yellow spot, the macula) with many journals and around districts in which one sees blurred. At one point, the blind spot, you see nothing, there pulls the optic nerve toward the brain, where the senses are then processed further.
