The Siepser Vitreous Hemorrhage Demonstrator eye model is extremely useful in simplifying the explanation and conveying to patients the effects of vitreous hemorrhage and head position.
Good-Lite Siepser Vitreous Hemorrhage Demonstrator
Vitreous hemorrhaging can be a factor in the severe loss of vision or visual acuity which can be temporary or long term. It is always a very frightening experience for the patient during the time they are going through it. This model contains simulated, suspended "blood particles" that float in the vitreous humor. When moved or shaken, which simulates normal head movement, the particles remain suspended. At rest, the particles will settle, as blood particles will, at the lowest point in the eye. When the model is in the upright position on the base, simulating a flat sleeping position the particles settle on the macula in the region of the fovea; when this happens, vision can be seriously affected or even completely obscured. During the demonstration, the eye model can be rested on its side which simulates a more upright position the settling particles will congregate toward the bottom side of the eye, away from the macula. The model thereby helps patients understand that keeping still and elevating their head can improve their vision. This eye model also gives the medical professional the option of explaining and showing their patient how vitreous hemorrhaging can be caused by many conditions, such as, head and or eye trauma, diabetes, age-related macular degeneration, choroidal melanoma; Terson syndrome where branches of or the central retinal vein hemorrhage; a retinal tear or detachment; posterior vitreous detachment; Sickle Cell retinopathy, or other conditions that cause new blood vessels to form or bleed at the rear of the eye.
