There is a gap in the market for a book on small animal ophthalmic surgery that is heavily illustrated with the use of step-by-step color images. This book fills that gap. The atlas format, that has accompanying text as secondary support including possible complications, will support the visual learner as much as the more abstract thinker, while delivering its general educational aims to a wide audience - general practitioners to developing specialists all around the world as well as residents in training.

About Rick F Sanchez

Rick became a Diplomate of the European College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists (DipECVO) in 2007. He is a Spanish national and followed his education in the US and the UK. He obtained a Bachelor's degree in Biology in St. Thomas Aquinas College, in New York in 1994 and a DVM after attending Ross and Louisiana State Universities in 1999. He commenced his specialty training in the US and later moved to the EU where he attended the Universidad Autonoma de Barcelona (UAB) to obtain his European veterinary qualification in 2002. Since, Rick obtained his RCVS certificate in ophthalmology (UK) and completed his residency training at the University of Glasgow and the Eye Veterinary Clinic, in Herefordshire, England, after which he obtained his DipECVO in 2007. Then, he headed the ophthalmology service in a private practice in England from 2006 until 2011. That same year he joined the Royal Veterinary College of the University of London as a Lecturer to re-launch and lead the new Ophthalmology Service at the Queen Mother Hospital for Animals (QMHA).

David graduated from the University of Edinburgh in 1992 and, after a period in general practice, completed a PhD at the University of Cambridge in the molecular genetics of inherited eye diseases of dogs. Following this he moved to the University of Bristol for a three year clinical residency in veterinary ophthalmology. After this he was appointed Lecturer in Veterinary Ophthalmology at Bristol University Veterinary School, a post that he held for three years before joining Davies Veterinary Specialists in October 2003 to jointly run their ophthalmology service. He holds both RCVS and European Diplomas in Veterinary Ophthalmology and is an RCVS recognised Specialist in Veterinary Ophthalmology and European Veterinary Specialist in Ophthalmology.
