    Hi all, I'm still a med student but figuring I'll be reading ophtho journals in the future I was interested in starting to take a look at a few journals. Which general ophtho journal(s) are the best to read, ie most respected, have the biggest impact on trends in ophthalmology practice, etc? Thanks for your input in advance...

    I would suggest 'Archives of Ophthalmology' and 'Ophthalmology'.. I believe all residents get a free subscription to Ophthalmology courtesy the AAO. Also check out this link: http://in-cites.com/research/2005/may_30_2005-2.html

    I would also recommend Survey of Ophthalmology. A smaller journal, but publishes excellent reviews.

    My other suggestion would be to just read up on the ophthalmic manifestation/aspect of whatever disease process you're following on any particular rotation. This is something your medicine, surgery etc. teams will never expose you to. If you have a HIV/AIDS patient on the service, find out about the opportunistic ocular infections that this patient may develop. If there is a patient on your cardiology service on amiodarone, find out about the potential ophthalmic side effects of this medication. Etc... You might be able to educate your residents!
