The softcover edition of this comprehensive, superbly illustrated textbook contains key updates to the text and references, reflecting the main developments in science and in practice since first publication. It is aimed squarely at veterinarians in practice and training interested in all types of ophthalmic diseases and disorders. Species coverage is mainly dog and cat with additional material on the horse and the cow. Following an outline of the basic elements of ophthalmic science relevant to study and practice, the author provides a detailed description and discussion of each condition including aetiology, clinical signs, diagnosis, prognosis and therapy, plus a chapter on problem-oriented ophthalmology. Dr Martin has filled an important gap in veterinary ophthalmic literature and has created a valuable resource, focusing throughout on the clinical needs of the practitioner and the student.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Fills an important niche…highly recommended.
American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists

Gloriously illustrated with superb colour diagrams and a huge number of clinical photographs…truly a masterpiece.
Canadian Association of Veterinary Ophthalmology

…Quality visual material with the advantage that the text and relevant photographs are alongside each other…easy to dip in and out of, readable and comprehensive.
The Veterinary Record

…covers veterinary ophthalmology very thoroughly…The explanations are excellent and the many illustrations are especially helpful in this field…Better covers a wider range of species than other books, many of which focus on small animals. (3 stars)

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Kate F McGovern, BVetMed (University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine)
Description: This update covers all aspects of ophthalmic disease in veterinary patients. Introductory chapters that detail principles of ophthalmology are followed by a chapter for each area of disease. The previous edition was published in 2005.
Purpose: The purpose is to cover the vast majority of questions that are likely to arise in this area of veterinary practice.
Audience: Although it is targeted at general practitioners, the book is also suitable for veterinary students because it is well written, clear, and concise. It also would be a useful reference for veterinary ophthalmologists.
Features: It covers veterinary ophthalmology very thoroughly. The ophthalmic pharmacology chapter is well written and contains a lot more detail than other books. The explanations are excellent and the many illustrations are especially helpful in this field. A hardcover probably would be more practical, as this is a book that will be useful to have in a practitioner's truck.
Assessment: This book better covers a wider range of species than other books, many of which focus on small animals.
