Atlas of Ophthalmology


The Atlas of Ophthalmology is a pictorial documentation of eye disease. Emphasis is placed on showing and describing the clinical picture and its various stages as it is seen in photographs and by ancillary tests, rather than giving a detailed overview of the whole disease. Presently the Atlas contains about 7500 pictures.
In its "Vision for the Future" the International Council of Ophthalmology (ICO) has made education and training of students, residents and specialists as well as other healthcare personnel all over the world one of its main goals. The Atlas is part of this effort. One of its declared vehicles is the utilization of the World Wide Web for transmitting this educational information.
The advantage of an Internet-based publication is that it can be easily updated. By inviting the readership to contribute to the atlas it is hoped that with time only the best documentation will be shown.

The use of this atlas is free of charge as long as it is used for educational purposes, and as computers are becoming more and more affordable its information will be available to any health care personnel all over the world.

Call for contributions
This atlas intends to be as comprehensive as possible and shows the best pictures available. It is continually updated and better pictures will always replace the not so good ones. Such an undertaking is only possible with a lot of help. We are therefore asking our readership to provide us with good pictures of diseases, variations of diseases, ancillary test results (fluorescein angiograms, OCTs, ultrasounds, CT-scans, X-rays, etc.) and especially cases that are limited to certain areas of the world. We would also like to show histopathological pictures to provide a better understanding of the disease.
Please provide either slides or digital pictures with a resolution close to 2000 pixels per inch. Submit the pictures via the submission process of this atlas or via e-mail to: Verlag ONJOPH.COM, Georg Michelson, M.D., Henkestr.91, 91052 Erlangen, Germany 45, e-mail address:
Each submitter will be given credit. It is important, however, that previously published pictures have permission for republication from the publisher and the senior author.
