EYES

CATARACTS

Background: Cataracts are uncommon in the equine but can and do occur in geriatric, diabetics and may occur following eye trauma or infection, and some systemic illnesses. Congenital cataracts also occur and are not generally amenable to treatment.
Symptoms: Any opacity of the lens can be considered a cataract. When advanced, the lens is white in color or appears crystallized.
Diagnostics: Ocular exam.
Principles for Supplementation: Antioxidants are particularly useful in treating cataracts, as well as nutrients that support healing and have affinity for the eye.
