31. Protrusion of Third Eyelid in Dogs
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.
32. Retinal Detachment in Dogs
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.
33. Retinal Hemorrhage in Dogs
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.
34. Retrobulbar Abscess in Dogs
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.
35. Strabismus in Dogs
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.
36. Trichiasis
Trichiasis is a condition in which hair arising from a normal site contacts the corneal or conjunctival (lining of the eyelid) surfaces. It is common in breeds with flat noses and prominent eyes, such as the Pekingese, pug, shih tzu, and bulldog.
37. Tumors of the Anterior Uvea (Iris and Ciliary Body) in Dogs
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).
