Essentials of Veterinary Ophthalmology 3rd Edition PDF
In this Third Edition, the most frequently encountered eye diseases of domestic animals are presented along with their treatment. This book also provides the critical information for a busy general practitioner, small animal practitioner, and equine practitioner who needs a single ophthalmology text that covers their needs. When there is more time, and if the reader seeks additional information on an ophthalmic disorder, the comprehensive Fifth Edition of Veterinary Ophthalmology and other references can be consulted.
Relevant chapters from the Fifth Edition have been distilled into this book. As the ophthalmic structures are, for the most part, examined under direct observation, often supplemented with magnification and special illumination, a working knowledge of ocular development and anatomy is important. As most ophthalmic diseases can easily be photographed, nearly all of the illustrations are in color, facilitating transfer of this information to the clinical patient! Algorithms have been included when possible to speed the clinical problem solving process!
The complete list of references (often in the hundreds) for these chapters are available in the Fifth Edition of Veterinary Ophthalmology. Selected sentences in each chapter are in green to assist with studying; they represent the “silver bullets” or vital information of the more frequently encountered ophthalmic diseases. The appendices (A-X) include the ocular therapy by drug group, available DNA tests for eye diseases in animals, inherited eye conditions (presented in the different chapters) of the dog, cat, horse and food animals, and those lysosomal diseases with ocular manifestations.
