Approach to the Blind Patient*
Approach to the Blind Patient
Blindness, complete or partial, is a relatively common clinical presentation of veterinary species, but one with a multitude of possible causes. A thorough history
and clinical examination is necessary to localise the lesion. Furthermore, being familiar with the neurological pathways involved in the relevant neuro-ophthalmological tests is also mandatory for an accurate anatomical localisation of a lesion. This correctlocalisation allows the clinician to formulate an appropriate differential diagnosis
list, to select diagnostic tests, and ultimately, to implement targeted therapies to the disorder responsible for the blindness.
