Carefully designed to be equally useful for learning and in practice, the book offers a streamlined, practical approach, with bolded terms to enhance comprehension.  High-quality color photographs provide visual depictions of the conditions discussed.  Essentials of Veterinary Ophthalmology, Third Edition is an indispensable resource for veterinary students or clinicians wishing to hone their ophthalmology knowledge and skills.
