The free online ophthalmology book!

April 17, 2009

I came across ophthobook just browsing for some opthalmology videos. The person behind this cool project is Tim Root.

Well, actually, this book, website, and all illustrations were created by myself. My name is Tim Root, and I’m an ophthalmology resident with a background in graphic design and cartooning.

On the website you can find free videos w/ explanations, free chapters of the book, which also is coming soon in a paper format on Amazon. I’m not an ophthalmologist and most likely will never be one, but the information on this website is very helpful not only for ophtho residents but also for regular USMLE takers. Enjoy the website and drop a line what you think about it.

    thanks for writing a book like this. this book has yellow cover which i liked a lot(my eyes likes yellow), the illustrations and picture s inside,all seems to be hand drawn which is fantastic ,because i m tired of reading medical books,that looks so boring and big and lacks fun factor.
    by the way, will this book be available in indian markets? because i don`t have a credit card to buy it on line
    thanks and all the best

    lol
    That is way too funny. I just found this same website today when I was searching for ophthalmology videos on YouTube. It seems pretty good. I only wish it went into further details.
