SEROUS RETINAL DETACHMENT(4 year old German Shepherd)


Acute blindness had been present 24 hours prior to presentation. A mild conjunctival hyperemia and aqueous flare were present in both eyes. Both pupils were dilated and each had a poor PLR. This photograph through a 28 diopter lens shows a swollen optic disc and dilated retinal vessels that go in and out of focus. The retina is elevated due to subretinal fluid. Vision returned following treatment of this presumed immune mediated disease.
