This comprehensive, superbly illustrated textbook is aimed at the veterinary practitioner interested in dealing with all levels of ophthalmic conditions, so that only the most complex cases need specialist referral. Species coverage is mainly dog and cat with additional material on the horse and the cow. Following an outline of the basic elements of ophthalmic science relevant to study and practice, the author provides a detailed description and discussion of each condition including aetiology, clinical signs, diagnosis, prognosis and therapy, plus a chapter on problem-orientated ophthalmology. Dr Martin has filled an important gap in veterinary ophthalmic literature and has created a valuable resource, focusing throughout on the clinical needs of the practitioner and the student.
