License

A license holder may download purchased eBooks on up to five personal devices. eBook license holders can access the content for the life of the product. Typically, this is five years from the date of publication, except in instances where the content is specific to a particular year or if the purchase was for a subscription of a given length.

Recommendations

Not recommended for use with tablet/smartphone operating systems that are not installed by the manufacturer. Not recommended for smartphones with screens smaller than five inches.

We recommend user to use apps on devices rather than web-based readers for better performance and usability.

 

[1] Offline readers for PC and Mac are in development and plan to release later in 2020.

For more information, including how to access your eBooks and download the app, visit aao.org/store. Navigate to the page for your product.
