New Strategies to Prevent Canine Posterior Capsule Opacification

08/07/2014

In this CHF webinar Dr. Heather Chandler, DVM, PhD of The Ohio State University, College of Optometry, discusses new strategies to prevent canine posterior capsule opacification (PCO). PCO is a common complication of cataract surgery. Lens cells left behind after surgery migrate and proliferate, resulting in an interference with light transmission and secondary vision loss. Dr. Chandler is working on the development of novel therapies to reduce PCO formation, including surgical and pharmaceutical interventions. Dr. Chandler will also discuss potential intraocular drug delivery options to prevent PCO.

This presentation was recorded at the 2013 National Parent Club Canine Health Conference hosted by the AKC Canine Health Foundation and generously sponsored by Nestlé Purina PetCare.
