Case Report: Corneal graft as surgical management for deep corneal ulceration in a horse

Authors


ABSTRACT:

An 8-year-old pony was diagnosed with a progressive infected deep corneal ulcer affecting the left eye. Despite intensive medical treatment the corneal ulcer deteriorated and surgical intervention was necessary to preserve the globe. A frozen corneal graft was placed under general anaesthesia to repair the corneal defect. The corneal graft healed without complication and the patient regained good vision despite the location and size of the defect.
