The Eyes Have It (TEHI) app is designed to teach medical and optometric students, and to assist physicians, optometrists, ophthalmic technicians, nurses and other health care providers in diagnosing and managing eye care problems.

Written by respected University of Michigan ophthalmologist Jonathan D. Trobe, MD, the text contains hyperlinks to supplemental images, narrated animations, and videos that illustrate the clinical and teaching points. A picture-based multiple-choice quiz allows users to assess their knowledge.

With 134 eye conditions, 410 images, more than 40 narrated animations and patient videos, 6 screening examination videos and an eye anatomy review section, this pocket resource can be your go-to source for eye information!

A quiz of multiple-choice questions allows users to test themselves on their knowledge of eye conditions and their management. The quiz can also be used by instructors to assess the proficiency of their trainees.
The web product by the same name, on which this app is based, has become the favored worldwide resource in this field.

• Learn about an eye condition through concise bulleted text that addresses What is it? How does it appear? What else looks like it? What to do? and What will happen?

• Develop a differential diagnosis using the links to candidate conditions
• Find out what happens if you correctly or incorrectly diagnose or manage a condition

Ratings and Reviews



Better pictures than my optometry school teaches with in lecture!

Great study tool and reference for clinic and the wards!


The Eyes Have It mobile app is a great tool to have at your fingertips for reference to ophthalmologic findings. It has a very user-friendly interface, making it an easy, quick reference to use while on the wards or in clinic. Additionally, the drop down sections make it an excellent learning tool for students, providing a systemic way to read through the different findings and pathology. I highly recommend this app to anyone learning about or seeing patients with eye conditions.

Great resource! Easy to use!


This mobile app is a great resource and reference for clinical findings in ophthalmology. Medical students can use it to better understand the subtle differences in certain pathologies and to review the ocular manifestations of systemic disease. It is great for residents who would like to make an informed consult or who may need a quick guide to eye diseases. For how straight forward the app is, it is surprisingly comprehensive. Highly recommended for anyone with a smartphone who is interested in ophthalmology or sees patients who may present with eye complaints!!
