Review:

"This book is extremely well organized and user friendly. There is an individual index at the beginning of each chapter as well as an individual summary at the end of each chapter making for ease of use. Many specific diseases & problems have well organized outlines broken down into aetiology, clinical signs, diagnosis, and treatment, making for an easy comparison to & guidance with ongoing clinical cases.

There are many "photographic tutorials" on various procedures, e.g., placement of a subpalpebral lavage system, that are excellent "how to guides." In addition to in-depth text, there are flow charts for diagnostic protocols/procedures to aid in the diagnosis of suspected keratitis cases. The book contains an extremely comprehensive collection of high quality color photographs of virtually every eye affliction making direct comparison to clinical cases quite easy. I have found this to be a very useful diagnostic aid as many of the ocular problems have distinct pathologic features. In addition, there are many photographs of normal (and variations of normal) eye structure/anatomy compared to various examples of abnormal, making for a useful diagnostic aid.

There is also an excellent chapter on "ophthalmology with respect to the pre-purchase examination" and a unique chapter on "conjunctiva, limbus, episclera, and scleral problems. There is a comprehensive appendix on ophthalmic pharmacology & treatment protocols in addition to ones on congenital problems, neoplastic problems, and the ocular manifestations of systemic disease. In addition, there is a very extensive list of additional reading and current references at the end of each chapter. The index is very complete and well cross-referenced making the finding of specific information easy.

This book is excellent and a must have for the equine practitioner or veterinary student interested in horse practice.

excellent text has been written by authors who have years of experience in veterinary ophthalmology. Their experience has been collated into an extremely easy to read book. The text is concise and accurate and complimented with many colour annotated plates.

This book would be an investment if one only had to read chapter 3. In this chapter the authors have described in detail the large number of emergency type problems seen with horse's eyes, and in reality this is what is commonly seen by the equine practitioner, as well as the type of cases referred to a veterinary ophthalmologist. This chapter gives the reader a very good overview of problems that require immediate attention.

Corneal lesions including ulcers are commonly seen in practice and their description, method of healing and drug therapy are discussed fully in chapter 9. This is probably the best description of equine corneal pathology I have encountered and the authors supply a number of good treatment options as well as discuss treatments which the practitioner can formulate themselves. The section on ulcerative keratitis is a must read!

Having this text would certainly assist the equine practitioner in confirming retinal problems seen during routine ophthalmic examinations. I think it would be safe to generalize that most students and practitioners find direct ophthalmology difficult, let alone diagnosis and interpretation of fundic pathology. This text gives one a clear and concise overview of the fundus.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this text and would strongly recommend it to the equine practitioner and believe it would compliment any practice library.
