More About the Author

When I qualified as a vet way back in 1988 I knew that I wanted to dedicate my professional life to veterinary ophthalmology, the study of animal eyes. Yet I was also fascinated by exotic species be they axolotls or zebras! I set myself the task of trying to link those two interests together by concentrating on ophthalmology of exotic species. I seems to have taken a long time, but finally nearly 25 years on, I have written a book, Ophthalmology of Exotic Pets, that I hope will be of use - and enjoyment - to those interested in eyes from a veterinary perspective and also those involved in the care of exotic species.

I am a practising vet, running the ophthalmology clinic at Cambridge Veterinary School, but also teaching and involved in clinical research. I have written a book on Veterinary Ocular Emergencies and plan one on how the eye responds to systemic disease in animals. I am a fellow at St John's College where I teach pathology to undergraduate veterinary and medical students. I have three great sons and a lovely wife who tries to keep us all in order! I am a committed Christian with a particular interest in how my faith should guide my involvement with animals, and have written a short book Animal Rights and Human Responsibilities which I hope to expand in the future.

Product Description


However, Ophthalmology of Exotic Pets could certainly serve as an important and necessary resource for, and a valuable addition to the library of, primary care practitioners who frequently practice exotic animal medicine and surgery.    (Journal of The American Veterinary Medical Association, 15 December 2012)

This book is an excellent text to have in any small animal, exotic or zoo clinic and is recommended for its ease of use and clinical application.   (The Veterinary Record, 15 September 2012)

From the Back Cover

This quick reference handbook covers the diagnosis and treatment of eye disease in a range of exotic companion animal species, including rabbits, rodents, reptiles, birds, amphibians and fish. It clarifies when extrapolation from cat or dog eyes is appropriate, or when new information is needed to ensure that diagnoses and treatments are appropriate for the particular species. Writing in an accessible and down to earth style, the author brings a wealth of personal experience to this specialised subject area. The book contains many ophthalmic photographs of both anatomy in normal eyes and pathology in abnormal cases. It also includes a separate chapter on the common ophthalmic features of exotic pets, discussing what can be learnt from cross–species comparison and another chapter giving a brief history of comparative ophthalmology.

Ophthalmology of Exotic Pets is an invaluable aid for veterinary practitioners and students with an interest in exotic pet species, as well as for veterinary ophthalmologists.


  • Covers lagomorphs, rodents, reptiles, birds, amphibians and fish
  • Offers clear guidance for species–specific treatment
  • Facilitates extrapolations from the cat or dog to the exotic eye
  • Written in a concise quick reference format
  • Highly illustrated with colour photographs

There are many differences of the structure of the eye in some animals. It is very helpful for vet clinicians.
