Overview

Successful management of eye disease relies on the veterinarian’s ability to identify ocular features and distinguish pathologic changes. Atlas of Feline Ophthalmology, Second Edition is an invaluable diagnostic reference, providing high-quality color photographs for comparison with a presenting complaint. Presenting 394 photographs illustrating both normal and pathologic ocular conditions, this Second Edition offers a current, complete reference on ocular diseases, adding conditions recognized since publication of the first edition, a broader geographic scope, and many new images with improved quality.

Carefully designed for easy reference, the contents are divided into sections corresponding to specific anatomical structures of the eye. A useful appendix new to this edition groups figures by etiology, making it easy to find every image associated with a specific agent or disease. Atlas of Feline Ophthalmology, Second Edition is a useful tool aiding general practitioners in diagnosing eye disease in cats.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Amber Labelle, DVM, MS, DACVO (University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine)
Description: Each of the 12 sections of this color photographic atlas of feline ophthalmic disease is dedicated to an ophthalmic anatomic location, arranged from anterior to posterior.
Purpose: It is designed to serve as a comprehensive photographic atlas of conditions affecting the feline adnexa, globe, and orbit. It is a current update of the first feline atlas published in the U.S.
Audience: Although written for practicing veterinarians, this is also a useful reference for veterinary students and ophthalmology residents. Its beautiful images also make it a useful tool for educating the general public and cat owners. The authors are board certified veterinary ophthalmologists with extensive experience in feline ophthalmology.
Features: Covering feline ophthalmology in a case-based manner, the book is arranged in anatomical sections, beginning anteriorly with the adnexa and moving posteriorly. Each section consists of 2 to 3 large color photographs per page with an accompanying paragraph describing the signalment, clinical signs, and diagnosis. Some cases also include information about diagnostic tests or treatment. The organization by anatomic location makes the atlas easy for readers to peruse and identify cases similar to one they may be examining in their practice. Readers should not expect this atlas to serve as a comprehensive textbook. Rather, it is a series of beautifully illustrated clinical vignettes with excellent references to guide them to more detailed information.
Assessment: This is a superb update of the previous edition. The beautiful photographs will give veterinary practitioners new tools for identifying and treating feline ophthalmic disease. This book will be very useful for both general practitioners and veterinary ophthalmologists.

“In summary, the ‘Atlas of Feline Ophthalmology’ provides a comprehensive collection of pictures of feline ocular diseases and is a useful addition to the library of veterinary ophthalmologists and veterinarians with a deeper interest in ophthalmology.”  (Veterinary Record, 18 August 2012)
