Each section starts by detailing relevant anatomy and physiology—the essential framework for understanding the basis for the related diseases—and then summarizes specific disease entities in outline format, with major features highlighted.

Over commonly encountered disease entities are listed, along with corresponding page numbers, on the inside front cover of the book for rapid reference. There is no section on optics or pathology, but despite this shotcoming I can give no less than 5 stars. Dr Chern has done more for resident education with his books than almost any other single person in the field of Ophthalmolgy.

The best review book in ophthalmolgy By An Ophthalmologist on Jun 21, This is the best review book in ophthalmology. I have 3 other ophtho review books that were hardly ever used in favor of the Chern book. A must-have for any ophthalmology resident. It is well organized, has excellent pictures and tables, and focuses very well on high yield information. There are few things not covered such as optics. But a few other things that could be improved are discussion of visual field interpretation, corneal topography interpretation, a little more on surgical techniques, particularly cataract, and coverage of refractive surgery as this is now included on the OKAPS and boards.

What I have done is written notes in the margins of additional facts and info from other texts such as kanski or the basic science series to make one source I can use for review. Highly recommended. The Chern question book is excellent too. Some of the techniques, pharmacology, and therapy options are out of date, but the majority of information is nice and concise for reviewing Expected it to be better By Ms on Jan 28, Overall good book.

Neuro is surprisingly very poorly written. Lacks a section on optics. Pediatrics and strabismus section is great. By Sunaina on Mar 01, excellent review for the boards! Good book, five stars.

By H on Feb 02, Good book, five stars. Excellent resource. With last minute optics and the photos from the path BCSC book, I felt very prepared during the test. I would highly recommend that you read over this book once or twice before the exam.

There are some other review books that are better in this regard, but as I have found, all of these review books have errors and none have the attention to detail that you NEED in a review book for the boards.
