The EyePathologist is a web-based, instructional environment on the anatomy and pathology of the eye designed to emulate one-to-one interaction with an expert eye pathologist. It is designed for use by a wide range of health professionals from first-year medical students to ophthalmic pathologists as a teaching and reference tool. A database of more than 5,000 diseases that affect vision and the eye as well as other tissues, lavishly illustrated with over 4,000 high quality images, includes dynamic links to a glossary of over 6,000 linked definitions.

You can directly review the Overview pages of all diseases without registering but to see all pages and utilize all the features of the program, we ask that you register. While the program is still under development you may register at no cost. We are actively seeking your feedback about the program features and content.
