The Ophthalmology Examinations Review 2nd ed.

Many new treatments and diagnostic procedures in ophthalmology have been refined or newly developed during the past four years, a new edition reflecting these changes is most timely.

The scope and aim of the book will be consistent with the first edition, which provides a broad review of the specialist ophthalmology examinations for final year ophthalmology residents and trainees. The book deals primarily with key facts and topics that are important from the examination perspective. Only information and facts that are considered relevant and critical to the exams are covered, with topics that may be of scientific interest, but are not commonly tested in exams, specifically left out. Time-challenged readers will also benefit from the knowledge acquired from various other sources or textbooks that are now organized and synthesized in this book. While not meant to replace the standard textbooks, enough information is contained within the book to serve as the main revision text nearer the exams.

The style and format of this book is intentionally didactic, with questions and short answers. The answer includes a “model opening statement,” followed first by a classification system to aid organization of facts, and then the core explanation in concise short notes. “Exam Tips” are inserted to provide an insight into techniques of answering different types of questions and when appropriate, a “Clinical Approach” section is also included.

In the new edition, topics such as new understanding of disease mechanisms (e.g., genetics of eye diseases), new investigations (e.g., OCT), and novel procedures and treatment (e.g., the use of antivascular endothelial growth factors, new refractive surgical techniques) are covered.

This book will be a valuable guide to the final year ophthalmology residents and trainees taking the specialist ophthalmology examinations, particularly for exams with a strong oral or viva component. Although primarily aimed at candidates attempting the British postgraduate exams (FRCS, FRANZCO, MRCS, MRCOphth and FRCOphth), it is also useful for other examination systems (e.g., the American Boards). Many junior residents, in fact, find the information handy during grand rounds.

Multiple Choice Questions in Ophthalmic and Neuroanatomy


Multiple Choice Questions in Ophthalmic and Neuroanatomy was written from notes that made by the author while preparing for the College of Ophthalmologists’ primary examination. At the time it was difficult to gauge the standard expected as there were no questions available.
This book aims to help many candidates who need to learn this sort of anatomy and hopes that its appeal extends beyond budding ophthalmologists and general surgeons to include optometrists and orthoptists. The questions deal with the following topics: osteology; anatomy of the head and neck; vascular anatomy; neuroanatomy; orbital and autonomic anatomy; ocular adnexae and extraocular muscles; cranial nerves and visual pathway; ocular anatomy; and embryology.

Review Questions in Ophthalmology: A Question and Answer Book


Clinical and Experimental Opthalmology, Volume 34 — “The latest edition of Review Questions in Ophthalmology is a comprehensive question and answer book aimed primarily at ophthalmology registrars approaching final examinations. All the information is presented in a multiple-choice format with clear and concise explanations provided at the end of each chapter. There is an emphasis on case-based scenarios. The book is illustrated with both colour and black and white photographs including clinical photographs, imaging and fluoroscein angiograms. Overall, I found this to be a comprehensive text that would be a useful self-assessment tool for registrars approaching final examinations. The clinically orientated and pathology sections are excellent and the multiple-choice format is a nice break from reading didactic texts.”
