What is HEiLearn?

HEiLearn is an open access, educational website for students, physicians, patients, and anybody wanting to learn more about the eyes. Our goal is to be a trusted source of ophthalmic information distributed in various modalities to suit different learning styles.

What you will find in our website

HEILearn has a growing collection of ophthalmic educational resources currently including articles and questions. Topics include eye physiology, anatomy, pathophysiology, examinations, and treatment. In time we will be adding additional resources such as atlas images, annotated surgery videos, and research opportunities for medical students.
