Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Mitzi K Zarfoss, DVM(University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine)
Description: This is arguably the most complete and up-to-date ophthalmology resource for the general veterinary practitioner. The color illustrations and photos are a vast improvement over the previous edition published in 2001. This book includes more chapters and concurrently more information (i.e. neuro-ophthalmology, ophthalmology of exotic pets) than other books.
Purpose: The purpose, "to provide a basic outline and introduction to clinical ophthalmology for both undergraduate veterinary students and practitioners" is retained from the previous edition.
Audience: Although it is intended for veterinary students and practitioners, the book is also useful to veterinary ophthalmology residents as a reference, particularly early in their programs and also in their efforts to educate clinical veterinary students.
Features: The images, summary tables, glossary, and the appendix of breed-related ocular diseases are extremely useful. Shortcomings include the relative neglect of food/farm animal ophthalmology and the loss of the "red eye" and other flowchart/appendixes that were in the previous edition.
Assessment: This high quality book should be the most compatible with veterinary student education across the country. It is a marked improvement over the previous edition in both esthetics and content, while preserving the general principles and coherent organization of the previous edition.
Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Amber Labelle, DVM, MS, DACVO (University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine)
Description: This is an update of an indispensable guide to comparative veterinary ophthalmology. The previous edition was published in 2007.
Purpose: It provides the most current diagnostic and therapeutic information in comparative ophthalmology. The book fully lives up to the authors' expectations, providing not only critical explanations of the anatomical and physiological basis of disease, but also clinically applied and tested advice on treatment of ophthalmic disease..
Audience: This book is written for practicing veterinarians, but students and trainees will find it equally invaluable. The authors are experts in their field and have included other experts amongst their invited authors.s.
Features: Following a format similar to other ophthalmology books, this one begins with sections on anatomy and physiology, pharmacology, and diagnostic techniques. It then sequentially explores each anatomic site, moving from anterior to posterior within the eye. This eyelid-to-orbit approach makes finding information quick and easy. The tables neatly summarize information, and the 1,000-plus color figures and photographs provide clear illustrations of ocular disease.
Assessment: Of all the available ophthalmology books, this one is the most comprehensive, the best written, and the most useful to practicing veterinarians and students. This is the book I most commonly recommend to veterinary students and practitioners. The easy-to-follow organization, accuracy of information, emphasis on evidence-based medicine, and beautiful color figures and photographs make this book as "fundamental" as its title suggests!
From the Publisher
"The most recent edition of this renowned veterinary ophthmology textbook follows its predecessor's eyelids-to-orbit approach, focusing on ocular anatomy, detailed disease description, diagnosis and suggested treatments. The book comes in a hard cover for easier and long lasting handling of its 500 or so pages...In summary, this book provides a clinical approach of ocular conditions, diagnostic hints and treatment options that render it an indispensable tool for ophthalmological consultations. The clinical description is supported by good quality and self-explanatory drawings and pictures, which also give the book a veterinaryophthalmology atlas perspective. In my opinion, it is an invaluable tool for veterinary students, general practitioners and veterinary ophthalmologists, and represents good value for money."
