TAG Episode 18 - The Eye HandBook app (AAC Enhanced)

In this episode, Dr Krishna and I discuss the Eye HandBook app that he and partner Dr Ken Lord developed. This app, available for both iOS and Android devices, has been a huge success. How can you disagree when the price is FREE and it is loaded with useful information for eye care professionals? At the time of this recording in March 2011 the Android version had yet to be released but it has since been released…see links in the show notes for downloading the iPhone or Android versions.
