Book Review: 

Personally, I think there is no book that covers all ophthalmology well. Thank God for Superspecialty Textbooks! 

If you are just starting out as a postgraduate resident in training, it is always good to start with the foundation even if you learned something from it in MBBS. 

I loved Kansky's Clinical Ophthalmology when I first read it. I'll admit, however, that it doesn't provide enough detail about some topics, although Brad Bowling's current version takes care of that.

Yanoff and Ducker's Ophthalmology covers many of Kansky's gaps and is a great read too.

Parsons Disease of Eye is too brief for postgraduates and too complex for undergraduates. However, I found it enhanced my understanding, reading it after Kansky and Yanoff.

The only textbook series looking at all aspects of ophthalmology may be Jacobi's Principles and Practice of Ophthalmology. I would still recommend it despite its intimidating versions.

BCSC series (by AAO) is good but does not go deep enough into the topics. Still, a worthwhile read to get a good understanding of the fundamentals.

Whether MBBS is good or not depends entirely on you and your goals in life. If your goal in life is to spend 5 and 1/2 years rote learning 2000-page books of 19 subjects followed by 2-5 years Gramin Seva Bond where you will get between 10k to 50k depending on your state Anything will be paid, so fine.

And it doesn't stop there. If you decide that MBBS is enough then you will be stuck on the maximum salary of ₹1 LPM for the rest of your life. 

If you decide to get into PG, it may take a year to 5 years to crack that entrance. Your average clinical PG includes two-three 36-hour shifts per week and 12-hour shifts on all days except on 36-hour days, for 3 consecutive years without holidays. 

After this, there will be again a service bond of 2-5 years depending on your state. Of course a lot of PG students hang in the middle of the way.

If you survive your PG and your bond, there is a super-specialty course admission, which is obviously more difficult than you think. 3 years of similar experience followed by service bonds of 2-10 years. Yes, the tenure of the bond in Tamil Nadu is 10 years.

So, overall, you will eventually be able to live life on your own terms until you are in your late 40s to early 50s. If this sounds like your goal in life, you are welcome to consider MBBS "better".
