Contagious Ophthalmia in Sheep



Contagious Ophthalmia in Sheep



Proc. Ann. Meet. Sheep. Fmrs, N.Z., 79-88



Contagious ophthalmia of sheep can be a serious problem. In New Zealand it usually appears in late summer or early autumn, and most of the members of an infected flock become involved. It is characterized by photophobia, conjunctivitis, corneal opacity, irido-cyclitis, and excessive lachrymation. In severe cases proptosis and keratocoele often follow. The condition is bilateral and causes temporary blindness, but there is comparatively little constitutional disturbance.
