She dilated his eyes to get a good look after realizing that she was having difficulty seeing the retina with her basic equipment. She feels like there is some cloudiness appearing on his lens in his right eye and possibly slightly in the left....maybe the beginnings of cataracts, although she wouldn't give a definite. She has recommended me to NC State College of Veterinary Medicine from which I understand is the leader in Equine Opthalmology. I will be contacting them next week after she refers me to set up an exam with one of their vets.
But in the meantime, I am wondering if anyone has experience with horses and cataracts or cataract surgery. At this point I don't know what to expect if indeed this is what he has.
