 Slatter’s Fundamentals of Veterinary Opthalmology is now in its fifth edition. This well-known and well trusted reference book brings the reader 1000 colored photos, and beautifully drawn diagrams to illustrate the anatomy of the eye, ocular diseases, procedures, and surgical techniques. There is a chapter in this book for exotic pets, which is not commonly seen in all ophthalmology books. The chapter includes Normal STT, phenol red test, and IOP for exotic pets, as well as diseases that can occur in the rabbit, ferret, mice, rats, chinchillas guinea pig, raptors, birds, reptiles, and amphibians.

Each chapter was edited by each of the authors, but when updating this edition the book was reviewed by veterinary ophthalmologist, students, and large and small practitioners. Therefore tailoring the book to all facets of ophthalmology; small animal, large animal and exotic animal ophthalmology concerns, conditions and treatments.

I would recommend this book to Veterinary students and general practicing veterinarians. They will find this book to be an invaluable tool to assist them in their learning of this challenging, but exciting specialty of Veterinary Medicine. Slatter’s Fundamentals of Veterinary Ophthalmology is one of the must haves for every veterinary clinics library.
