"The third edition of Equine Ophthalmology is an excellent resource for both general equine practitioners and veterinary ophthalmologists. The content is organized in a concise but thorough format. The book provides information regarding the equipment necessary for a complete ophthalmic examination and practical advice for both medical and surgical management of various ophthalmic diseases. The images of various ophthalmic diseases, along with charts and tables summarizing treatments, will aid equine practitioners in providing excellent ophthalmic care to their patients. I have used the previous versions of this book for several years, and I highly recommend this edition for anyone wanting to expand their knowledge of equine ophthalmology" (Reviewed by Meredith L.
