Moon Blindness

posted by Horse Owner Today    |   July 18, 2012 16:44

Question: Hi Dr. Harvey, greetings from Whitewood. I have a 17 yr old Clyde mare who has been diagnosed with an auto-immune disorder of her eyes (moon blindness) . They are often cloudy and there is irritation and discharge; she seems to be somewhat light-sensitive and they are getting cloudier for more of the time. She seems to drive fine with another horse but is hesitant and hyper-alert in new circumstances so her eyesight is failing. Is there anything I can do to ease her discomfort?

Answer:  Thanks for the query Janet, nice to hear from my hometown!  You can ease your mare's discomfort by applying an anti-inflammatory medication topically, provide shade as the eyes become very light sensitive and get her a fly mask.  Be proactive with her management Janet!  -Dr. D.
