This revised and expanded third edition of Dr Magrane's text is a valuable addition not only to the veterinary ophthalmologist, but also to clinicians and vision researchers who require a knowledge of the special characteristics of the canine eye. The text is very concise and is lucidly written, and the book contains abundant illustrations and artist's drawings that are of excellent quality. The initial chapters describe the salient features of the normal anatomy and physiology of the eye, the special techniques required for examination of the dog eye and adnexa, and general aspects of ocular therapeutics and surgery. The description of the various diseases and treatment is divided into chapters according to anatomic classification, including chapters on lids and lacrimal apparatus, conjunctiva, cornea and sclera, uveal tract, orbit, lens, vitreous, retina, and optic nerve. Glaucoma and the ocular manifestations of systemic disease are discussed separately.
