Major topics discussed include anatomy, optics, pharmacology, genetics, embryology, disorders of the cornea and conjunctiva, glaucoma, strabismus, disorders of the retina and vitreous, ocular tumors, systemic diseases and the eye, neuro-ophthalmology, cataract surgery, intraocular lenses, glaucoma surgery, corneal surgery, eyelid, lacrimal and orbital surgery, laser surgery, and retinal and vitreous surgery. A new chapter on refractive surgery has been added to this rapidly expanding subspecialty.
