LENS RESOBTION(4.5 year old DSH)


This cat was first examined at 12 weeks of age. At that time, the kitten was blind from bilateral mature cataracts. With the passage of time, the lenses have reduced in diameter. With the pupil dilated, the normal tapetal reflex can be seen 360. The ciliary processes are present (arrows) attached directly to the wrinkled lens capsule. When dilated, the cat had functional vision.
