A med student from the Netherlands here. We havent had any ophthalmology but were expected to study it ourselves. Now i have my internships in it, and this looks incredibly helpful, in a fun and easy way. Way more accesible and fun than reading some books. (although that is always needed ofcourse).

Thank you very, very much!
