Digital-Eyes, from the American Academy of Ophthalmology, provides ophthalmic animations designed for ophthalmologists to use on their websites and during their chair-side patient education consultations. The animation provides doctors with a dynamic way to engage with patients regarding eye health. For instance, the animations can help eye doctors show cataract patients how their vision problems can be corrected with surgery.

The downloadable audio-visual collection has more than 70 3-D animations of eye anatomy, common eye conditions and treatment options. All presentations are offered in English and Spanish.

Besides cataracts, other Digital-Eyes animation topics include: diabetic retinopathy, dry eye, eyelid problems, floaters and flashes, glaucoma, how the eye works, how to insert eyedrops, LASIK, and refractive procedures.
