Type of Resource: Teacher background info

This online resource is a 6:25 minute video that shows how to dissect an eye.

It highlights each of the key components of the structure of the eye and can be used as an instructional guide for teachers or to replace the activity in class.

This could then be linked to the development of the bionic eye.

Note: that Science ASSIST has developed an SOP (Standard Operating Procedure) document for this activity: SOP: Performing an eye dissection
