Equine Eye Diseases

This educational webinar on Equine Eye Diseases was presented by Dr. Kelly Knickelbein from Cornell University. If you have ever dealt with an equine eye problem, you know the importance of early recognition and appropriate treatment. Acute eye problems truly are a medical emergency!

Dr. Knickelbein takes us through a review of ocular anatomy and common ophthalmic diseases in horses. Finally, we deep dive into two hereditary eye diseases in Friesian horses: Bilateral Corneal Stromal Loss (previously referred to as Friesian Corneal Dystrophy) and Distichiasis.

If you prefer only to watch the portions that cover hereditary eye diseases in Friesian horses, please watch the video below.
