Abstract: Ocular ultrosonography in horses represents a valuable imaging diagnostic tool for the diagnosis of intraocular and periocular diseases. particulary when cornea or lens opacities preclude opthalmoscopy of deeper structures. The authors studied normal and pathological aspects of the eye. Nineteen horses with opacities of the dioptric structures underwent an ultrasound examination. This technique allowed the diagnosis of a posterior synechia (1), cataracts (8), vitreous opacities (6), retinal detechment (3), and a foreign body (1), Ultrasonography provided helpful information about the structure and vascular pattern when the conventional opthalmic evaluation was unable to achieve a correct diagnosis.
