I’m working towards an MSc in Clinical Optometry and have found the library to be invaluable for help with the course reading list.  Articles can be emailed to me and books are delivered to my practice or made available to read online. The library is also really useful for reading up on topics like glaucoma – helping me to stay up-to-date with all the latest developments.
