SOUZA, A.L.G. et al. Extracapsular cataract extraction in horses by nuclear fragmentation using adapted instruments. Arq. Bras. Med. Vet. Zootec. [online]. 2008, vol.60, n.6, pp.1376-1381. ISSN 0102-0935.

It was studied the nuclear fragmentation technique for lens extraction in six adult horses using adapted surgical instruments. Postoperative assessment revealed a reduction of intraocular pressure in all animals during the first postoperative days, as well as varying degrees of photophobia, blepharospasm, corneal edema, and iridocyclitis. Fibrin formation mainly located in the axial portion of the pupilla was noted in most cases, affecting or impairing vision.

Keywords : horse; cataract; surgery.
