The eye is the organ of vision. It allows us to see and interpret the shapes, colors, and dimensions of objects in the world by processing the light it reflects or emits. The human eye is also an immensely complex organ with the possibility of errors and various types of injury, infection, and changes due to systemic disease.

Since the eye allows us to visually communicate with the world around us, studying its intricacies is a very important aspect of modern medicine.

Here are a few studies into visual communication, illustrated by the Medical Illustration Sourcebook Artists.
