  • Iris hypoplasia

    Posted on by Abii Dowdy

    At the beginning of this week we posted the above photo to our Facebook page and asked clients to have a guess at what was wrong! Here is the highly anticipated answer… Well done to everybody who got it right!

    “This photo is a good example of iris hypoplasia- non progressive, probably congenital and inherited. In this horse’s eye the pupils are much smaller and more triangular shaped. This has a limited effect on vision as the the horse’s brain is used to the slightly abnormal pupils and thus different retinal images.”
