Results 21-30 of 30 in Eyes
21. Lenticular Sclerosis in Cats
As the animal ages the nucleus of the lens becomes denser, harder and somewhat cloudy in appearance. In the geriatric cat, lenticular sclerosis can be so cloudy that the condition is easily mistaken for a cataract of the lens.
22. Ocular (Eye) Trauma in Cats
Ocular trauma is the result of blunt, piercing, pointed or jagged objects inflicted directly to the eye, including cat claw injuries, thorns, branches, writing instruments, or small airborne objects. Ocular trauma can affect pets of any age.
23. Ophthalmia Neonatorum in Kittens
Ophthalmia neonatorum is an infection of the conjunctiva (the thin layer of tissue that lines the eyelids) or cornea (the transparent structure that makes up the front part of the eye) before or just after the separation of the eyelids in the newborn.
24. Progressive Retinal Degeneration in Cats
Progressive retinal degeneration represents a group of inherited eye diseases characterized by deterioration or abnormal development of the retina. Most cats are seen in the late stages of disease with advanced changes.
25. Protrusion of Third Eyelid in Cats
Protrusion, prolapse or elevation of the third eyelid refers to the abnormal elevation of the smooth inner eyelid located between the cornea and the inside corner of the eyelids. It is a common symptom of ophthalmic disease.
26. Retinal Detachment in Cats
Retinal detachment is the separation of the retina from the underlying choroid and occurs most often as a result of degenerative changes in the peripheral retina and vitreous body, which produce holes or tears in the retina.
27. Retinal Hemorrhage in Cats
Retinal hemorrhage is a focal or generalized area of bleeding into part or all of the retina, which is the innermost covering of the eyeball, containing nerve elements for receiving and transmitting visual stimuli.
28. Retrobulbar Abscess in Cats
The retrobulbar space is the area just behind the eye. Although uncommon, an abscess or pocket of infection/pus can develop behind the eye, which is referred to as a retrobulbar abscess.
29. Strabismus in Cats
Strabismus, also called crosseye, walleye, esotropia or exotropia, is caused by a lack of muscle coordination between the eyes, causing them to point in different directions. In other words, the eyeball is in an abnormal position within the eye socket.
30. Tumors of the Anterior Uvea (Iris and Ciliary Body) in Cats
Tumors occurring in the anterior uvea may be located within the iris, ciliary body or both. They may originate within the eye (primary tumors) or they may spread to the eye from distant body sites (secondary tumors).
