Highly recommended

Very informative and the sectioned view is a great feature. The animations are the biggest attraction for me - when I showed to one of my patients, they truly understood their condition. My patient was amazed! It's much more efficient than showing pictures. I've already recommend to a number of colleagues.

Update heeded for iOS 11

Works extremely well and makes my clinical work as an Ophthalmologist a lot smoother as it aids in explaining diseases and interventions to patients.

Needs an update ASAP to work with iOS 11 though.

This is an incredible app that shows just how remarkable the eyes are. My favorite feature are the video animations! This is a must purchase for anyone interested in learning more about the eyes!
