Finding Images Your professor can display copyrighted images in class because their use is covered by Section 110(1) of copyright law ("In Class Performances") which allows for the display of copyrighted images in a face-to-face teaching session. Your use is not covered by that act. However, you have other options for using images in your notes or for presentations.
Atlas of Ophthalmology has a large array of images. You can include links to these images in your slides or notes to avoid a) violating copyright law and b) paying for each individual image license, as required by the website if you want to republish the image
