OPHTHALMOLOGY

INTRODUCTION

My name is Rugayah Ali, Liaison Librarian for the Department of Ophthalmology, School of Medical Sciences, Universiti Sains Malaysia. The Virtual Subject Libraries (VSL) Ophthalmology is one of the information repackaging to provide some guides for our users about the Online Resources available in the subject. If any comments or suggestions, please do not hesitate to contact me at: rugayah@usm.my, phone: 609-7671475. Thank you.


REFERENCE

i. WIKIPEDIA

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ophthalmology From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia about the branch of medicine that deals with eyes. For secret society, see Oculist (secret society). Ophthalmology is the branch of medicine that deals with the anatomy, physiology and diseases of the eye.[1] An ophthalmologistis a specialist in medical and surgical eye problems. Since ophthalmologists perform operations on eyes, they are both surgical and medical specialists.

 

ii. ANNUAL REVIEW

http://www.annualreviews.org/loi/med Annual Reviews is pleased to offer audio and video conversations with the contributors at the heart of our organization: our superb editors and authors. These expert scientists step back from their current research and consider its relationship to careers in scholarship, to the broader face of science, and to society.
