A Clinical Case from the Archives : 14/01/2006

What is happening in this chinchilla eye? What might be the consequences?

This is a lens luxation, although you might well mistake it for an Encephalitozoan cuniculi uveitis as seen in this rabbit. I don’t think chnichillas get E cuniculi though if I’m wrong please let me know! A lens luxation could result in glaucoma but this one has fallen posteriorly and needs no treatment other than phototherapy, the results of which are presented as the first image here!
