11 Ultrasonography. (G) Dog: glaucoma, goniodysplasia (GD). Note increased contact of the iris with the anterior lens capsule (35–50 MHz probe). (Courtesy of Dr J. ) Electrophysiology is indicated when critical assessment of the retinal components and pathways is required and may be a more sensitive indicator of retinal health than ophthalmoscopy. Differentiation between peripheral and more central causes of visual impairment may also be accomplished. ERG is useful in the detection of inherited retinal degenerations, to evaluate retinal function in the presence of opaque media that precludes critical direct evaluation, and to study drug effects on retinal function.

9 Anatomy of the outflow pathways is depicted schematically in cross-section in (A) and gonioscopically in (B). The normal gonioscopic appearance of the canine (C) and feline (D) outflow pathway is shown. Key for (A): c: cornea; i: iris; pl: pectinate ligment; cc: ciliary cleft containing uveal trabecular meshwork; cbil: inner leaflet of ciliary body; cbol: outer leaflet of ciliary body; tm: scleral trabecular meshwork; svp: scleral venous plexus. L. ) • Hyperopia is a refractive error caused by relatively inadequate refractive power, generally due to a shorter than normal axial length; images are formed behind the plane of the retina.

Delivery of systemic medications to the cornea via the circulatory system is limited to diffusion from the perilimbal vasculature, and those agents secreted in the tears or that penetrate the blood–ocular barriers enter the anterior chamber and pass through the corneal endothelium; topical or subconjunctival medications are appropriate for most corneal diseases. Diseases of the anterior segment may be medicated topically, subconjunctivally, or systemically, while most posterior segment, orbital, and eyelid diseases require systemic medications.
