Equine Cataracts/equivision success

Hi My name is Mary,

I am new to this forum and am needing some feedback on equine cataracts. I have an overo warm blood and he is 5. Had a vet out and he told me that the horse has a catarct in his left eye. He has not had it long it is in the semi early stages. There was no outside injury to the eye and I suspect it is systemic. I have addressed it with the vet recomedations for uvitius and not responses. Also have used some homeopathic and bio feedback very little response but some, about 9% clearing.I have researched and found that there is a product called Equivision by Ader/Aderent. PLEASE any feed back on any experiences would be great. I thought if it is a systemic thing that I could clear the eye before any scarring and then treat the root cause. Just saw that my

User says I do not have any Horse OH Yes I do. 2 very loved and spoiled overos. Must have missed something signing up for the forum.Duh

Many thanks,

Sorry I don't have any input other than the canine kind. I know cataract surgery has become very common with dogs and people. I wonder if the surgery may be move advantageous.

The reason it says you have 0 horses is because you have none in your barn. If you click on the "horses" on the green bar on the top, you can add your horse, some information and photos.

Thank you for your reply. Yes it is a more common for an equine that we think but ohhh. ...can be very costly here in the MS area where they have no one really close. I guess I am reluctant to do surgery till the last. It is so invasive.

If you hear of any cures besides surgery please do not hesitate to give some info.

Also thanks for the direction in listing horse barn info. Looking for a good pic to post
