Ophthalmology Models

The pathologies of the eye are mostly divided according to the different affected eye region.

The most common eye diseases, to which preclinical models are required, are:

  • Dry Eye
  • Age-Related Macular Degeneration.
  • Cataract
  • Diabetic Retinopathy
  • Glaucoma

The eye of the rabbit is commonly accepted as the most similar to the human eye among laboratory animals. However, many studies are carried out in rats and in pigs, both for therapy testing and for examining medical devices related to the eye. Other models or target animals can be considered upon request.
