The Ophthalmology Subscription-based Review is designed to help you pass your written exams and update your clinical knowledge base; it benefits Ophthalmology residents taking their WQE and practicing physicians preparing to take the cognitive DOCK exam or to complete the Quarterly Question Module instead of the DOCK Core Knowledge Module. The course includes didactic lectures with embedded review questions. Emphasis is on evidence-based practice and board-relevant standards of care, incorporating new concepts and testing strategies, including an extensive review of optics and refraction, ophthalmic imaging, and more recent approaches to ophthalmic surgery. As a result, it provides a good review for physicians wanting a thorough update.


After this review, each participant should be able to:

  • Apply the basic principles of optics to refractory problems and how to correct them
  • Describe the anatomy and physiology of each separate unit of the eye
  • Discuss common ocular conditions and delineate how to correlate clinical and pathologic findings
  • Diagnose and manage common types of congenital and acquired disorders in children
  • Explain the process of cataract surgery and potential complications
  • Explain the basic concepts of glaucoma diagnosis and treatment approaches
  • Discuss the differential diagnosis and treatment of uveitis
  • Delineate how to apply differential surgical approaches to ocular surface reconstruction
  • Describe the structure and function of the external eye and cornea as well as common disorders and use of artificial corneas
