This book originated in 1994 and 1995, when the Handbook of Small Animal Ophthalmic Surgery was published in two volumes: Extraocular Procedures, and Corneal and Intraocular Procedures. The two volumes have now been combined. Although this edition was published in 2001, if you haven't seen it yet, it is well worth the investment.

The book is liberally illustrated with photos and expert drawings, taking the reader through a wide range of surgical techniques. There are eight pages of color photos in the center of the book, a device often used by printers to keep publishing costs down. The drawings are excellent and the proportion is good. The procedures and techniques contained in this text have also been adapted to other species, especially horses.

The book also considers the structures associated with the eye, including injection sites for local anesthetics, and the disorders of the nasolacrimal and tear systems.

As often as one sees eye-related cases in the average clinic, this book will become well-worn in short order. I recommend it.

Contents
