Evaluation of patients with an ocular problem can be frustrating for many practitioners. One disorder that can be particularly difficult to diagnose is dislocation (luxation) of the lens.

A lens luxation or subluxation can be primary or secondary in origin and there are breed predilections for this problem. Animals with lens luxations are often painful and a common sequela is loss of vision. As such, making a prompt and accurate diagnosis and appropriate management of the patient is essential to ensuring comfort and optimizing the outcome.

In this Specialty Mashup, Dr. Brad Holmberg discusses lens luxations in dogs and cats including risk factors, keys to making the diagnosis, and appropriate management of affected patients.
