Do you have an eye for anatomy? If so this BIOX is a great place to start. The human eye is a fascinating structure, from a simple photosensitive cell to a complex optical processing centre providing perfect vision in high definition. Learn how this small binocular spherical structure allows you to detect and respond to light in your environment. You will even learn about pathologies of the eye - look out for "The Clinic" land marks on your learning aid!
Don't be fooled. This bilateral spherical organ is a prized sensory jewel - the question is, can you retrieve it? Well, we invite you to do so. Work hard through the 5 layers of the eye lid from the skin and subcutaneous tissue to the conjunctiva. Dissect off the eye lids to mark the start of your journey through the human eye. Next up, the extraoccular muscles from the Levator Palpebrae superioris, obliques and recti muscles - you will swiftly learn that size means nothing when it comes to anatomy! Dissect the three layers of the eye from the fibrous sclera to the inner layers where the retina lies. Squeeze out the aqueous fluid from the anterior and posterior chambers and finally you may retrieve it - the translucent smooth like pebble. The lens. Don't miss out on this incredible treasure hunt. Look out for the clinical landmarks highlighting pathologies such as glaucoma and papillioedema.
