Ophthalmology E-learning Course

Interactive e-learning for ophthalmologists

Eye-Site provides a high-quality e-learning resource for trainee ophthalmologists and qualified staff alike.

The programme, which is mapped to key elements of The Royal College of Ophthalmologists' training curriculum, covers topics such as clinical assessment, refraction, laser surgery and microsurgery. As you progress through the course, you can use a range of interactive features, such as images, video clips and animations, to help embed learning and understanding.

The learning materials also feature Ophthalmopaedia, the world's first online encyclopaedia of ophthalmology. This resource is packed with articles on a wide variety of general ophthalmology and sub-specialty topics to help broaden your knowledge.

Eye-Site is designed to support traditional teaching methods, such as face-to-face learning and one-to-one tutorials. You can use this resource for general learning, exam preparation or pre-course learning. The content has been developed by leading clinical experts, in partnership with The Royal College of Ophthalmologists and Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare.

Eye-Site is available 24/7 via the Internet and so you can study at your own pace at home, in the workplace or on the move.
