Caption: Model eye made from plaster. This was used as a teaching aid for ophthalmology, demonstrating various structures of the eye. Ophthalmology is the study and treatment of medical conditions of the eye. The earliest literature related to ophthalmology in England originated from the late 16th century but it was not fully established in medical practice until the 19th century. This model eye is continental and dates from the late nineteenth century.
