The third year of MBBS is the most peaceful and important. Peaceful because by this year you are aware of the workings and environments of a medical career, which means you are all set for the practical medical career. At the same time, this year is very crucial as in this year you will be able to decide in which branch of medical science you will be practicing. The idea of a future medical practitioner starts firming and taking shape. 

The third MBBS (Final Prof Part-1) is a little different from the MBBS of the last two years. This is because, in addition to PSM, there are two clinical subjects, ENT and ophthalmology. Ophthalmology is the study of the Eye, ENT is focused on the ear, nose, and throat, and community medicine is a subspecialty of medicine that includes extensive epidemiology.  

The only thing that helps in the process is books, so it is very important to know the best suitable 3rd-year MBBS books. As we all know books are man's best friends in every aspect of life,  especially in students’ lives. Here we are going to discuss 3rd-year MBBS books. These books are written and recommended by great authors and scholars. 

MBBS 3rd year books and subjects are given below which are simple to read and understand. So let’s start-


A K Khurana is the best book of Ophthalmology, it’s the gold standard book in 3rd-year MBBS. The book is concise, compact, and simple for understanding the Thermology for your UG preparation point and it is also sufficient for your theory and practical exam point of view. 

You can also choose the Parson Book as a reference point of view. It’s a foreign writer's book which is although not well organized as the previous one and made for PG preparation but covers some important topics such as Glaucoma gateway for better understanding and conceptualized knowledge. 

For practical I would like to prefer Practical Manual Ophthalmology by Reynold Lawyer book. It’s the best book for practical, viva. 

SOCH a book of Simplified Ophthalmology by Doctor Utsav Bansal, this book has well approached a comprehensive conceptualized understanding of the Thermology subject. By reading this book you will be able to understand Ophthalmology in a short duration of time.
