About this book

Now in a two-volume Fourth Edition, this internationally acclaimed gold-standard reference is the leading text in veterinary ophthalmology. The book offers unparalleled coverage of disease and treatment of the animal eye, including both medical and surgical management of ophthalmic problems in domestic, exotic and laboratory species. For anyone with a special interest in veterinary or comparative ophthalmology, "Veterinary Ophthalmology" is an essential reference and a key addition to any specialist library.

With a host of international authors and full color illustrations throughout, the new edition carries on the tradition of excellence established in earlier editions. Highlights of the Fourth Edition include new discussions of noninvasive imaging technology, gene and gene-mutation DNA tests for inherited retinal degenerations, and expanded chapters on equine and feline ophthalmology, neuro-ophthalmology, and ophthalmic manifestations of systemic disease. Chapters on ophthalmic pathology, canine eyelid disease and surgery, canine glaucoma, lens and cataract surgery, and canine vitreoretinal surgery have also been significantly revised by new authors.
