Cow Eye Dissection: Examining Structure and Function Carolina Biological Supply Company1 Introduction The eyes of cows are structurally and functionally similar to the eyes of humans. During this activity, you will dissect a cow eye.
Dissection: Internal Anatomy. Using a sharp scalpel, cut through the sclera around the middle of the eye so that one half will have the anterior features of the eye (the cornea, lens, iris, and ciliary body) and the other half will contain the posterior features (most noticeably where the optic nerve is attached to the eye).
SHEEP EYE DISSECTION PROCEDURES The anatomy of the human eye can be better shown and understood by the actual dissection of an eye. One eye of choice for dissection, that closely resembles the human eye, is that of the sheep. Differences between the two eye types will be mentioned as the dissection is completed.
