lens luxation?

Sonopath Forum

Hello this cat presented with bulging eye, squinting, scleral vessels injected, eye pressures on tonopen were 45.Secondary Glaucoma due to lens luxation- anterior, was suspected. Did not responded to Glaucoma meds and after 3 days we decided to enucleate the left eye . However at the time of preaneshetic exam, the eye pressures were 20-25 mm/Hg
ASs I can not see the posterior chamber did a focal eye U/S. No experienced with eye U/S so hopefully somebody can interpret these . I do not see retinal detachment but can see abnormal lens, iris ? Would this suggest anterior lens luxation ?

The lens is thick but seems still in place and the second image looks like a seagull sign = detached retina but tough to tell from a still image.

Attached is a lens luxation

It will attach an example of lens luxation and of detached retina
