  • Purchasers of Veterinary Ophthalmic Surgery have at their disposal a comprehensive, step-by-step guide to all types of ophthalmic surgical techniques across all species.

    Techniques are covered topographically, and species-by-species, with difficulty gradings for each one. Many of these procedures will be undertaken by the veterinary generalist, not only the specialized ophthalmologist.

    Nearly 1,000 large-sized illustrations, 750 of them in full colour, allow the practitioner to follow the techniques step-by-step. Internationally recognized as an authority on small animal ophthalmic surgery, Dr Gelatt is joined by expert contributors who together provide authoritative and definitive solutions to practitioners' eye surgery requirements.

    Whatever your field of specialism, this is the only eye surgery book you are ever likely to need.

    For: residents in veterinary ophthalmology; general, small animal, and equine veterinary practitioners; veterinary ophthalmologists; veterinary medicine students.

    Published Reviews

    "If you are looking for a single book on veterinary ophthalmic surgery, then look no further. This book fills a void in the current veterinary literature, being the only one to provide a comprehensive description of surgical procedures in both small and Large animals...Although general practitioners will find this textbook useful as a reference for the most common ophthalmic surgerical disorders, it will mainly appeal to those pursuing specific ophthalmology and to veterinary ophthalmologists needing a refresher when tackling  the more rarely performed  surgical techniques."
