Obvious ophthalmology: canine glaucoma*
Canine glaucoma is a frustrating disease in many ways. Its presentation as a red painful eye can be confused with that of uveitis, but requiring a very different treatment regime. Its diagnosis is relatively simple as long as one has a tonometer, but made difficult by the price of the equipment required to measure intraocular pressure. Treatment can be similarly costly – and while it may be effective in the short term, preservation of vision and ocular comfort is rarely completely successful in the long term.
