This volume, with 21 contributors, reaps the benefit of some of the best minds in equine and ophthalmic experience today. This up to date and informative book is intended specifically for practicing clinicians and clinical science personnel. Ocular problems leave little room for error on the part of the veterinarian. As much of the information on equine ocular disease is drawn from research and practice on other species, this book's author encourages the publication of clinical trials and findings in refereed journals so that future books can draw from an even wider information base.

The book focuses primarily on diagnosis and treatment. The book is well organized and leads the reader through equine ophthalmology in a logical sequence. There are over 400 color photographs in 13 chapters. Drawings accompany many of the color photos to illustrate salient points. The practical as well as the scientific is addressed, with information on ultrasound, surgery, and diagnostics. In addition, the book covers normal and abnormal anatomy, broken down by structural anatomy. The chapter on equine vision is enlightening. The chapters on genetic/DNA testing and blind horse management are interesting.
