We developed an easily constructed, inexpensive eye model that consists of a Styrofoam head carved out to house a slide holder, a wide-angle, clinical photographic fundus slide, a plastic face, and an anatomically correct eye. The model can be used by students and residents to learn direct and indirect ophthalmoscopy, fundus photography, and laser photocoagulation. This model gives students and residents a realistic learning experience without inconveniencing or endangering patients.
