Glaucoma is the second cause of world blindness after cataract. It predominantly occurs as open angle followed by angle closure glaucoma. Since it is silent, chronic disease with no clinical signs at the beginning of illness, it is often undiagnosed and underestimated. Prevention by early screening by gonioscopy has a great potential towards precluding the disease. Additively manufactured human eye model is a great avenue for gonioscopy training as a substitute to the currently used animal models.
