A sound knowledge of basic sciences is vital for any doctor with an interest in ophthalmology, and is a significant part of all postgraduate examinations in the subject. Featuring 640 multiple choice questions, this is a comprehensive revision guide for candidates taking the basic sciences component of the FRCOphth and ICO examinations. It is highly recommended for ophthalmologists of all grades, ranging from juniors completing ICO basic sciences and FRCOphth examinations to seniors wishing to refresh their knowledge and revalidate. This book is divided into relevant chapters with topics that follow logically, offering a thorough approach to revision and exam practice. Each chapter includes questions in both the FRCOphth (SBA) and ICO (true or false) formats. Detailed, referenced answers are provided to aid comprehension, with difficulty levels allocated for each question to gauge personal progress. The authors have considerable experience of these types of exams both as trainees and examiners. They have produced detailed and comprehensive coverage of the curriculum.
Clearly organised by topic allowing ease of revision with detailed and well explained answers, it has wide appeal both to exam candidates and also to ophthalmologists seeking to refresh their knowledge or undertake revalidation. I recommend it highly. From the Foreword by Andrew Loteryshow more
