The book is organized in a logical progression from presentation and examination to treatment and surgery, presenting hazards, cautions, and suggestions along the way. Cautions apply also to the veterinarian as there is risk of injury at any time. Few of these procedures are presented with an anesthesized animal in a hospital setting.

This edition with 19 contributors, expands a great deal on the first edition. Most notably, the inclusion of more than 50% additional color clinical photos, and all drawings have been re-drawn and colorized. The chapter on ocular examination has been written and illustrated so as to make it more useful for all skill levels. Also improved and expanded are the chapters on diagnosis and management of ocular disorders for treating in the field; inherited ocular disorders; diseases and surgery of the lens and, corneal disease.

Chapter headings and page numbers are readily visible on the top of each page. Instrument use is explained and illustrated with photos; numerous charts compliment the text; the table of contents and index have color headings and larger type, enhancing search. Radiographs, microscopic and electromicroscopic views are used liberally throughout.

There are numerous illustrated, step-by-step procedures for treatments and surgeries of ocular disorders/diseases, walking the clinician through the process. The various parts of the eye and related problems are treated separately and thoroughly.

Injuries are illustrated and treatments offered with accompanying photos and drawings. Likewise, inherited disorders are addressed and explained. The connection between systemic disease and ocular manifestation is discussed as well.

As with the first edition the chapter on management of blind horses as will as steps to prevent further injuries from environmental hazards is interesting.
