Immune Mediated Ocular Diseases in the Horse

Sunday, May 13, 2018
3:30 PM to 5:00 PM

Immune-mediated ocular disease can be devastating to vision in the horse. This group of diseases have very specific presentations in the horse, and if discovered earlier in the disease process can lead to better long term prognosis. This lecture will cover immune-mediated corneal diseases, and their medical and surgical treatment. We will also discuss Equine Recurrent Uveitis (ERU) and updates in the pathophysiology of the disease in various breeds as well as management of ERU.
