An “ophthalmo-digital interface” is that part of a system that enables information to pass between the sensory organ of the eyes of living beings and the digital infosphere.

The term “ophthalmo-digital interface” was coined as part of the terminology of the “Digital Era Framework”. Within this reference framework, four spheres are distinguished on the basis of the type of information manifestation, which can be used to classify interfaces: The infosphere, which consists of the analog infosphere and the digital infosphere, the cognisphere and the entisphere.

An “ophthalmo-digital interface” can be considered either as a ” bio-digital interface ” and a “enti-digital interface” or as a “cogni-digital interface”. If the eye is brought into focus as a physical organ, then it is part of the biosphere and thus part of the entisphere. From a functional point of view, on the other hand, a reference to the cognisphere must be taken into account.
