Andrew Lam Hi Liam, Great question. I'm glad you are considering ophthalmology. It's a wonderful field and choosing it was one of the best decisions I ever made.…moreHi Liam, Great question. I'm glad you are considering ophthalmology. It's a wonderful field and choosing it was one of the best decisions I ever made. Here are two books you could consider:

"Basic Ophthalmology" which is published by the American Academy of Ophthalmology and covers a lot of fundamental info that will help you shine in your ophthalmology rotations.

And, if you are really serious about applying for residency, you should check out the Wills Eye Manual, which is the all-time best selling book in the field and used by most residents as an easy reference on how to handle almost every eye condition. Good luck!

An excellent biography. Two anecdotes I will never forget-Lindbergh was so concerned about making his craft as light as possible that he trimmed the margins of his maps. He also did not get much sleep at all the night before his historic flight.
