Editorial Reviews

Ralph E. Hamor
This third edition has 1544 pages and 37 chapters written by 44 contributors. The editor's purpose is to provide veterinary ophthalmologists and ophthalmology specialists with an updated and comprehensive source of information in the field of veterinary ophthalmology. This long awaited edition more than meets this purpose. The audience is primarily practicing ophthalmologists and ophthalmology specialists. This book should be required reading for any ophthalmology specialist that is in training. It would also be of interest to private practitioners who have a strong interest in veterinary ophthalmology. I feel that these audiences are appropriate. The editor is world renowned in the veterinary ophthalmology community. He has also collected an exemplary list of internationally known contributors. The number and quality of photographs are excellent. This edition has a much greater number of color photographs, as well. It has also been considerably expanded in coverage and depth. The print has been enlarged, making it easier to read than the second edition. This third edition is much needed; the second edition was published in 1991 and the profession has expanded considerably since then. This book is considered around the world as the source of veterinary ophthalmology information. I would give it my highest recommendation to anyone with a considerable interest in veterinary ophthalmology.
