Sudden vision loss is a distressing clinical presentation for animals and their owners.  In this session Robin will cover the important causes of sudden vision loss that occurs in dogs and cats. 
Small, white, fluffy breeds seem to be most prone to sudden vision loss. In these dogs colored light PLR testing can help you to work out whether these dogs have a retinal or an optic nerve lesion. Robin will also cover ERG - electroretinographic diagnosis of sudden vision loss.  Recently new therapies have been suggested for the treatment of sudden vision loss.
Did you know that most cases of sudden vision loss in cats are caused by high blood pressure? Did you know that you might be able to prevent these cases by regularly examining the fundus?  You should be doing a fundus exam in all cats over the age of 10 years!
