This new Manual builds on the success of the first edition of the BSAVA Manual of Small Animal Ophthalmology. This new edition begins with a clear and concise guide to the examination of the eye. Using the techniques described and the lists of differential diagnoses provided in Appendix I, it should be possible for ocular lesions to be identified and localized with precision. Chapters on imaging techniques (radiography, ultrasonography, CT and MRI) and laboratory investigations follow. New to this edition are chapters on anaesthesia and surgery. Basic principles such as tissue separation and suturing are described and illustrated with specially commissioned drawings.
