This edition, while numbered Third, is a sequel to the originally-titled Manual of Small Animal Ophthalmology. The authors felt that with the amount of updated information related to canine and feline fields, that this version would be appropriate. Extremely well done and thorough.

There are few conditions that would not be discussed and pictured here. The photos are clear and bright and manage to illustrate exactly what was intended. As usual, copy editing and grammar are precise. Highlighted text boxes direct the reader to related issues or essential additions to the topic.

The increase in availability of DNA testing for inherited eye diseases is one of the topics covered in this edition. In 2002, the date of the second edition, just one canine inherited disease was identified—at the time of this edition’s publication, more than 50 have been identified.

Improvements in surgical technique and instrumentation have resulted in a larger number of successes for many eye surgeries, including corneal disease, lens luxation and cataract. Many views of the proper use of instrumentation are shown.

The lists for further reading are expanded, although considering the quality of this book, such lists may not suggest volumes with more up-to-date information than that which is presented here.

The book begins with the ocular examination and continues to walk the reader through the steps to diagnose and treat the variety of ocular issues. The contents are: Ophthalmic examination; Ocular imaging; Laboratory investigation of ophthalmic disease; Diagnosis and control of inherited eye diseases; Ophthalmic analgesia and anaesthesia; Principles of ophthalmic surgery; Ophthalmic drugs; The orbit and globe; The eyelids; The lacrimal system; The conjunctiva and third eyelid; The cornea; The sclera, episclera and limbus; The uveal tract; Glaucoma; The lens; The vitreous; The fundus; Neuro-ophthalmology; Ophthalmic manifestations of systemic disease; A problem-orientated approach to common ophthalmic presentations; Index.
