A Clinical Case from the Archives : 29/12/2006

Here’s my last case for 2006! Just what you need in that slack period between Christmas and New Year! Frankie, a 3 year old Tibetan terrier, had a sore eye on Christmas day, so his vet referred him to me two days later. What is the problem and what’s the solution?

Did you see the bright arc of reflection showing the edge of the lens in the anterior chamber? Have a look again if you missed it. This is a lens luxation, classic in this breed at this age. Here is the lens on its way out via a simple lendectomy. Case solved and back home well before the new year celebrations begin! Have a great 2007 won’t you!
