This book is a question book that focuses on ophthalmology and specialties related to ophthalmology including neurology, neurosurgery, ENT, infectious diseases, rheumatology, etc. Nearly all medical schools within the UK are now using extended matching questions (EMQ) to examine students on their knowledge of different specialties. This book is designed to give students the opportunity to hone their skills in answering such questions and will have approximately 150 EMQs relating to the following topics:
- Cornea and external eye disease
- Medical retina and vitreo-retinal surgery
- Paediatric ophthalmology
- Ocular adnexal and orbital disease
- Refractive errors and optics
There will be questions on diagnosis, investigation and management of different diseases. At the end of each section the answer to the questions and an explanation of the answer will also be given. This will help overall understanding and comprehension.
