A Clinical Case from the Archives : 17/01/2007

This bearded dragon is referred because of possible cataracts. Is that what it has wrong with its eyes? This is a bilaterally symmetrical condition and otherwise the animal seems in good condition.

OK that was a bit far away wasn’t it!? Here is a closer photo. Get any nearer and the animal closes its eyes tight shut but otherwise he’s a harmless creature unlike the snake with a cataract I saw next which had enough sight left to give me a quick but painful bite! Anyway to get back to this dragon, I think that these may be lipid deposits – what do you think? There were no cataracts here by the way.
