Introduction to Ophthalmology

by Richard Mitchell, MD

Full comprehension of ophthalmic pathologies requires an understanding of ocular anatomy. This includes the specific structures, division, segments, irrigation, and innervation of the ocular globe and its surrounding structures. Likewise, the basic concepts of ocular physiology are crucial. This includes the fundamentals of light refraction within the eye chambers and the conjugation of the image coming from both eyes into a panoramic view in the occipital lobe. A solid grasp of these concepts allows for the early detection, diagnosis, and treatment of dozens of conditions.

I have never understood the eye, and he is a man who is an engaging speaker, and follows the KISS rule. (Keep It Simple Stupid) which is a nice foundation for building complexity later on. If we start with complexity , we can get lost in what is thought to be minutiae. This is a man who is dedicated to his teaching.

Perfect for getting a general idea. I think, however, that videos shouldn't be so segmented. I.e. there are several videos about glaucoma... they should all put together in one video.
