Cataracts in Horses
  by Robert N. Oglesby DVM


Introduction » Anatomy » Diagnosis and Prognosis » Treatment » More Info 

A cataract is any opacity of the lens or its capsule. There are many small structures and imperfections of the lens that are not cataracts, and harmless. Many types of equine cataracts are nonprogressive and harmless. Equine ophthalmologists are very noncommital when asked to predict the future of a cataract and even argue among themselves over nomenclature and significance. This article talks about the anatomy of the lens, diagnosis, prognosticating the significance of cataracts, and treatment options in horses.
