Our ophthalmologists are trained and experienced to examine all types of animals, and even horses have eye issues! This is "Chromy," a 9 year old Hanoverian horse who has some mild keratitis in his right eye, but otherwise looks excellent. Keratitis is a common, non-infectious eye disease in horses. According to an article online, the breed, Hanoverian, is a "warmblood horse breed originating in Germany, which is often seen in the Olympic Games and other competitive English riding styles, and has won gold medals in all three equestrian Olympic competitions. It is one of the oldest, most numerous, and most successful of the warmbloods." It's always smart to get the eyes checked of any type horse, especially competitive breeds that need their sight to ride.
