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."
