We describe a highly versatile artificial orbit system for teaching purposes and for experimental surgery on the anterior segment under controlled intraocular pressure, with the following additional features: (1) the capability to accommodate a wide range of enucleated globe sizes, (2) rotational and stereotaxic capabilities, (3) easy portability with low bulk and light weight, (4) the capability to be mounted on numerous optical hardware and energy delivery systems, and (5) low production cost.
