Diseases of the Canine Lens

This talk will cover the pathogenesis and diagnosis of commonly seen abnormalities of the canine lens including congenital defects, cataracts, and lens instability. We will specifically discuss how to differentiate between primary/inherited and secondary cataracts and lens instabilities as well as how this differentiation affects therapy. Lens-induced uveitis (LIU) associated with these conditions is under diagnosed and under treated; we will review tips for diagnosis and treatment of LIU.  Since most diseases of the canine lens require life-long monitoring, general guidelines for long-term management of these cases will be given.
