"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 veterinary ophthalmology atlas perspective. In my opinion, it is an invaluable tool for veterinary students, general practitioners and veterinary ophthalmologists, and represents good value for money."
