ABSTRACT

Canine Ophthalmology is largely neglected field in India a decade ago. Poor understanding and lack of publications on canine cataract surgery demands a statistical view on linked complications. This article has been an effort to add data to the literature available, in the form of bilateral feedback of canine cataracts and associated complications. In the present study, evaluation of cataract surgery using operative microscope (OM-8) was conducted in 28 eyes from 20 out of 36 clinical cases of dogs with history of vision impairment. Manual extracapsular cataract extraction (ECCE) under general anaesthesia along with a retrobulbar nerve block (RBNB) was found effective in the operated cataract cases. The present clinical study on canine cataract resulted in the restoration of ambulatory vision in 75% of operating cases in 3 months follow up(overall) at the Anand veterinary clinic during the period of two years from 2004 to 2006. This indicates that prior dry-wet lab training is needed to avoid iatrogenic injuries and ECCE under OM-8is an economic, ergonomic method providing vision to cataractous canine eyes in 3 months with less complication.

Keywords: operative microscope, canine cataract and extracapsular extraction.
