B-mode ultrasonographic ocular biometry in cataractous dogs

Binsha KM, Makkena Sreenu, NVV Harikrishna and Manda Srinivas
The present study was conducted to record changes in intraocular measurements in dogs affected with cataract using real time B-mode ultrasonography and comparing the change in ocular biometry with normal eyes. Transcorneal ultrasonography using excess coupling gel as standoff pad was performed by immersion technique with a 7.5 MHz sector probe. A total of 50 eyes (40%) affected with cataract were subjected to B-mode ocular ultrasonography and various ocular biometric parameters were measured. There was a significant increase (p<0.05) in corneal thickness in eyes affected with incipient cataract when compared to normal eyes. The intumescent cataracts have significantly reduced (p<0.01) anterior chamber depth and increased lens thickness (p<0.01) while hypermature cataract have significantly increased (p<0.01) anterior chamber depth, reduced lens thickness (p<0.01) and reduced lens equatorial length (p<0.05). Lenses with mature cataract and incipient cataract showed a trend towards increased lens thickness and immature cataracts demonstrated a trend towards reduced lens thickness with non significant difference.
