OpenEyes™ is the leading open source electronic patient record (EPR) for ophthalmology. It has been designed by clinicians to be fast in delivering content, fast to navigate and easy (and fun) to use. We benefit from a large and growing body of enthusiastic clinicians determined to make OpenEyes™ the EPR that will help you deliver data-driven patient care in the best way possible. OpenEyes™ is owned by the community and not by any individual or corporate entity. It can be customised to suit local needs and will scale to connect, seamlessly, primary and secondary eye care.

OpenEyes™ the leading open source EPR for Ophthalmology

OpenEyes™ is an electronic patient record application for ophthalmology, developed with contributions from a range of hospitals, institutions, academic departments, companies and individuals. Intuitive to use and fast, it runs in a web browser to ensure that it can be accessed from just about any device in any location. OpenEyes™ will always be available free-of-charge under an open source license, making it a cost-effective option for eye care, and, perhaps more importantly, ensuring that its development will always prioritise what clincians really need.

While OpenEyes™ can be downloaded and used free of charge anywhere in the world, we recommend that installations in a clinical environment are handled through our authorised professional services network. One of our professional services partners ToukanLabs, can provide advice and pricing on accredited implementation and support services.

Our partners will ensure that your clinical data integrates with hospital workflows and PAS system and that the connections to devices such as OCT machines or visual field devices are robust.

All users of OpenEyes™ can become members of our development community, participating in online and offline discussions to identify and prioritise the OpenEyes™ development roadmap.
