Dear Colleagues,

Equine Ophthalmology is a wide field with increasing knowledge and understanding of the pathogenesis and therapeutic options in a variety of congenital and acquired diseases.

Potential topics include but are not limited to orbital fractures or retrobulbar tumors and abscesses, disorders of the eyelids, conjunctiva, lacrimal system, cornea, sclera, anterior chamber, iris, lens, vitreous cavity, retina and optic nerve as well as, e.g., genetic, microbiological, and immunological findings.
