The text emphasizes disease that can typically by difficult to diagnose without specialised experience or specific instruments. Rare sign are also described to complete the range of possible ophthalmic disorders – making differential diagnosis easier for the veterinarian.

Systemic congenial disorders are discussed, especially ophthalmologic conditions brought about by external influences, such as trauma, intoxication or deficiency.
