Sadi F., Reference intraocular ultrasonography biometric values in Kord Horses, Onl J Vet Res., 21(12):762-765, 2017. Reference ocular measurements determined in seven 3 to 5 year old normal Kord horses are provided. Fourteen trans palpebral ocular right and left eye echo biometric examinations were performed. Horses were tranquillized with 0.3-0.4mg/kg acepromazine and 0.05-0.1 mg/kg xylazine. Ultrasonographic images were obtained with a 8 MHz linear probe in the sagittal plane. B-scan images along the central optic axis measured anterior-posterior length of the eye axis, lens diameter, depth of anterior and vitreous chambers with sonograms on the horizontal plane. Mean anterior to posterior eye globe length was 39.1 1.3mm, depth of anterior chamber 4.35 1.18mm, vitreous chamber 16.95 1.75mm and lens thickness 11.85 1.17mm. With exception of overall size of the globe and internal structures, the ultrasonographic appearance and echotexture of the Kord horse eye was similar to that described in other equines.
