New trends for Laser Use in Veterinary Ophthalmic Conditions

Original Webinar Date:
By understanding advances in ophthalmic diseases, we know that an ophthalmic lesion does not disable an animal initially, as much as other injuries like lameness. However, if they progress, they can become infected, painful, and in extreme cases the patient can lose sight.
When we talk about Corneal diseases we know that in the presence of an ulcer we are expecting the presence of vascularization, this is the form that the cornea has for healing. Blood vessels take growth factors, new cells and help the antibiotics to reach the lesion zone. By using super pulsed laser to stimulate blood vessels, we increase circulation to the corneal ulceration. This increases the time of healing and prevents different complications that need surgery to be repaired. 
Another disease that we are trying to help control is Equine Recurrent Uveitis.  It is a chronic non-curable disease, and every episode is worse, and that can lead to intraocular damage and is the number one cause of sight loss in horses. It is however controllable, and we can work to improve swelling and pain with super pulsed laser, as we do with the ocular signs with eyelid lacerations.
Join Aytzee Piñón, DVM, Iker Asteinza, DVM and Douglas Johnson from LTU for the October webinar as they review laser trends in veterinary ophthalmic conditions.
