One of the things I wish I had available to me when I was starting to learn ophthalmology was a list of resources.  I asked around and polled my fellow residents and attendings to find out what textbooks to buy, what question banks to use, etc.  I also turned to Google and was disappointed to find that there really wasn’t a whole lot of demand for learning ophthalmology (go figure).  I read reviews on Amazon about various books, and then for the books I couldn’t check out from my residency program’s medical library, I basically took a gamble.

Although I don’t feel like I wasted a ton of money on textbooks, etc., I still think it would be nice to have site that lists out all of those resources and helps me make an informed choice about whether or not to make a purchase.

That’s what I hope this section of the website will accomplish.  Whether you’re just beginning your ophthalmology residency or brushing up for the MoC exams or just wanting to get a refresher on ophthalmology, I hope it will be helpful to see lists of websites, textbooks, tools, etc. with detailed commentary on each, so that you can get a better sense of whether to drop $250 on that textbook or spend hours reading that website.  It’ll be slow-going (my first review post took about 5-6 hours to put together), but I have high hopes that this will be useful to you all.




Question Banks
