Dissecting a Cow's Eye
by Edgar Morales
When I went to the California Science Center in Los Angles I had the chance to dissect a cow’s eye! As my group and I entered the lab, I quickly smelled an unpleasant aroma which was a chemical that is used to keep the cow eye fresh. Then we took certain procedures like wearing our gloves and goggles to keep us protected before we begun. When we started dissecting the cow eye, we first had to cut the fat around the eye and locate the optic nerve. While my partner and I were cutting all the fat off the eye I dropped the eye on accident! I picked the eye up and put it back on the tray looking at my partner like oh my gosh!! Afterwards we had to cut the eye in half to have full access to the lens. Then I saw the pupil and it felt, and looked like a gumball. Finally, we all had to clean up and wash our hands to get ready to go. Dissecting the cow’s eye was one of the most amazing experiences of this school year.
