1448. White deposits on the dorsal cornea of a 5-year-old rabbit.

"For the past week, the rabbit has a white tissue covering his eye," the young man said. The 3rd eyelid covers up one corner of the eye permanently.

Under sedation, I was surprised to see thick white deposits on the 1 to 3 o'clock surface of the cornea edge. So the 3rd eyelid shoots up to protect the eye.

Electro-excision will be needed to remove the plaque but the owner is not in favour of it.
