Case Study 10

Lens opacity in a 1 year old dog. The opposite eye exhibits a mature cataract.

This is a partially resorbed cortical cataract. The resorption process occurs more commonly in young dogs. Leakage of lens protein from a hypermature cataract is often accompanied by symptoms of lens-induced uveitis. Rarely does the visual axis clear enough to allow for functional vision, as in this case. In most cases cataract surgery with implantation of a replacement lens offers improved vision and lessens the risk of secondary glaucoma.
