    Editorial Reviews

    From the Publisher

    ''On every page a plethora of images illustrate the pathological changes in the eyes of animals from cyclopic sheep globes to the retinitis in raptors infected with West Nile virus. Every veterinary library should hold a copy and it will become an indispersible guide for those grappling with the disease processes occurring in and around the eye.'' Mr David L. Williams

    "This book seems likely to make a major contribution to the Continuing Professional Development of all who deal with eye problems as ophthalmologists or pathologists. The text and illustrations are of high quality, reflecting the authors' reputations, and combine to make an outstanding publication. It is highly recommended and will surely have a place in the bench library of those who practice this specialty."
