I would like to share my experience in the recent
MRCS exams in Singapore with others.

congenital and acquired form.
Traumatic optic neuropathy - signs associated with
Recent cataract op - ECCE limbal wound and pale

In general, examiners are very helpful and
professional. They provided clues when I was stuck and moved on quickly to the
next case once I got the findings and diagnosis that they want.
