Electronic Medical Records for Ophthalmology

OpenEyes is an Electronic Medical Record (EMR) application for ophthalmology, which enables clinicians to access all the information they need in one place. This includes features like letter automation, audit reporting, anatomical diagrams, findings and diagnoses. Clinicians will no longer have to worry about administrative problems, since everything is just a click away. This creates streamlined access to clinical and technical resources to improve ophthalmic workflow and better use of staff time.

This product was created with the support of leading clinicians that make up the OpenEyes Foundation, so you can be rest assured that the application has everything that a clinician will need. Clinicians will be able to gain a full overview of disease progression and manage patient health, leading to improved clinical decision making, efficiency and outcome for patients.

Key features

OpenEyes is a web-based, open source project which has been developed with contributions from a range of hospitals, institutions, academic departments, companies and individuals. By coupling their clinical expertise with the experience of our team, ToukanLabs has developed the following key features for the OpenEyes:

  • Record patient medical history, measurements, observations, diagnosis and results
  • Fast and intuitive clinical dashboards
  • Letter automation and electronic forwarding to GPs
  • Clinical activities, procedures and scheduling management
  • Full auditing capabilities
  • Integration with hospital systems and ophthalmic medical devices
  • Patient trials support
  • Biometry, Visual Fields, Fundus Camera, OCT

Key benefits

The key benefits that OpenEyes provides hospitals and clinicians include:

  • Improved efficiency through the reduction of data entry and duplication
  • A modern, intuitive interface
  • A single, unified view of patient history and actions
  • Enhanced transparency thanks to complaint reporting and audit functions
  • Full interoperability with existing patient management and device systems
  • Ownership and access to all patient and clinic data
  • Generation of all correspondence to eliminate paper from pathways
  • Utilisation of clinical and technological resources

Graphing and Analytics

Diagnosis and Drill Down

The Diagnosis Profile Report shows the number of patients that have a diagnosis.

The names of these diagnoses listed in the first layer are common ophthalmic disorders for the relevant subspeciality. All other disorders not mentioned in the common list will fall into the 'Other' bin. By clicking into the bar labelled 'Other', further details can be seen.

One click on the diagnoses bar will lead you to a list of all patients with that diagnosis.

Change In Vision

The Change In Vision plot will show the change in visual activity, the change in intraocular pressure (IOP) or change in central retinal thickness (CRT).


The OEScape provides a summary for each patient for a specific subspeciality. Currently, OEScape is available in three subspecialties: cataract, medical retina and glaucoma.

Medical Retina

  • For Medical Retina plots, MR relevant data is shown on the left hand side and images are displayed on the right hand side of the screen
  • The Line chart in MR scape displays the data changes of central retinal thickness and visual acuity values over time
  • By hovering your mouse over the timeline on the left hand side, the images extracted from OCT dicom images can be viewed. It shows the OCT image of a patient’s eye at each given time plot
  • At the very bottom of screen of the Medical Retina scape, there is a plot of each injection time


Currently, there are three plots within the Glaucoma OEscape, they are medication plot, IOP plot and visual acuity plot.


  • Cataract OEScape plots visual acuity data over time. The vertical dashed lines indicate procedures, and which may affect the values
  • The unit scale of visual acuity can be changed in CA and MR plots. The default unit Snellen Metre
