Abstract Objective: To develop a reliable, inexpensive device for teaching ocular surgical procedures and practicing experimental techniques on enucleated eyes. Design: Teaching device trial. Methods: A Plexiglas ocular bulb holder was secured with its base support to a polyvinylchloride pillar on a modified polystyrene trial head. Results: This model allows curvilinear capsulorhexis and phacoemulsification of porcine lenses through a corneal tunnel incision and insertion of a soft foldable acrylic intraocular lens into the capsular bag. Argon and neodymium:YAG laser iridotomy and retinal argon laser photocoagulation can also be performed with this model. Conclusion: This inexpensive device is useful for teaching both surgical and laser ocular procedures.
