A Clinical Case from the Archives : 16/11/2005

Don’t you think this is quite the most beautiful lens pathology you’ve seen for a long time?! I’m kicking myself now that I didn’t dilate the pupil to get a full view and I will in a few months when I reassess the horse. Will it have progressed by then do you think? What effect do you think it has on the animal’s vision?

Here is the other eye a bit closer up. This is cataract in some sense, but as much change of refraction in the anterior cortex as an overt lens opacity. It seems to have little or no obvious effect on the horse’s vision and I have a sneaky feeling that it won’t progress much, if at all, at least in the short to medium term.
