Through observation and dissection, students learn about the structure of the eye. The cow eye is ideal because its large size makes for easy identification of the eye's components. Kit provides a step-by-step student guide (with labeled color images) for 1 or 2 students to participate in an introductory-level dissection activity that includes locating and identifying external and internal features of the eye. Also comes with a teacher's manual with instructional tips and additional resources.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from MUST have scalpel and prep beforehand!!! I wish I had known that I had to open the containers up and remove the large amount of tissue around the eye with a scalpel BEFORE I brought them into my class. The scissors won't cut it (pun intended)! The tissue removal took at least 5 extra minutes per eye and must be done carefully. If you're concerned with your student using a sharp scalpel, you should have the eyes prepped before class. Other kits I've seen provide a scalpel. I think Carolina Biological should explain this very necessary piece of info on the website when you purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy way to get started dissecting Good student and teacher materials. My students got so much out of the experience. As this was my first time leading a dissection I really appreciated being able to use the already packed kits. I saved all the non-perishables and plan to use them on another dissection later this year. The only complaint I have is that the scissors were not that good. They really couldn't remove the muscles surrounding the eye. Though this wasn't really necessary for this dissection, I would like to have higher quality scissors.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product Our kids really enjoyed dissecting the eyes. The only thing I suggest is putting a pair of gloves with the kit. If the kit is all you need then you should not need to get gloves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use I just love these young scientists kits. My 7 year old daughter has been interested in dissecting for over a year now and has no problem using these products. With the eye dissection she watched the video first , read the instructions and was able to do the complete dissection on her own (with me watching over her of course) I know it's a bit unusual for someone her age to be interested in this, that's why I'm am so pleased that I found this site with these wonderful products.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lots of prep time This eye dissection kit was very inexpensive and arrived quickly. I was disappointed to find before the dissection can begin, mounds and mounds of tissue surrounding the eye must first be removed (without severing the optic nerve). Very carefully and with a sharp knife, it took me about 30 minutes! The actual dissection went very smoothly and quickly, with good instructions. IDK, maybe all dissection kits require this much prep

Carolina's Perfect Solution Specimens

Carolina's Perfect Solution®—Safe. Convenient. Superior.

Our commitment to producing the finest preserved specimens on the market has led us to Carolina's Perfect Solution®, a unique, revolutionary fixative that is dramatically improving the quality of classroom dissection.

  • No formalin odor
  • No dangerous off-gassing
  • No dark and unnatural appearance

Instead, organisms preserved with Carolina's Perfect Solution® retain more lifelike color and texture. Because students study more natural-looking specimens, it is easier for them to identify the structures and, as a result, learn anatomy.

Carolina's Perfect Solution® specimens are safe and nontoxic, which means you need no special ventilation and there's no costly disposal.
