Burchard David Mauchart (19 April 1696 – 11 April 1751) was professor of anatomy and surgery at the University of Tübingen, Germany, and a pioneer in the field of ophthalmology. In 1748 he became one of the first to document the eye disorder now known as keratoconus. His surviving works are now to be found in the form of theses by his students.
He obtained his Lic. Med. degree in 1722 at the University of Tübingen. Mauchart also studied for two years in Paris from 1718-1720 under the oculist Woolhouse.
