The expertise veterinary ophthalmologists have in diagnosing and managing ocular disorders of non-traditional species varies widely. This special issue of the journal, Veterinary Ophthalmology, has been put together by a truly international cast of authors to showcase the knowledge base that exists in treating ophthalmic problems in exotic animals. Mammals, carnivores and herbivores are all covered, and the scope also includes laboratory animal ophthalmology with contributions from the biomedical and pharmaceutical industries.
This collection of primary peer-reviewed papers will be essential readers for specialist veterinarians working with exotics, laboratory animal personnel and veterinary ophthalmologists worldwide.
