Lens Luxation - Donkey

From WikiVet English
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The lens can luxate secondarily to glaucoma or equine recurrent uveitis. If the subluxated lens is stable and non-painful, then surgical intervention may be avoided. Usually there is significant intraocular disease present, which will interfere with vision even if the affected lens is surgically removed. Enucleation is then the only option if pain management is not effective.
