Hyperaemia of the surface of the globe or so-called “red-eye” is not only one of the most common reasons for a client presenting their animal for veterinary care, but potentially one of the most critical. As veterinary ophthalmologists, some of the most worrisome cases we see are those were ocular redness was (mis)interpreted as “just a bout of allergic conjunctivitis” or “he must have got some dust in his eye” and thereby serious and potentially blinding diseases such as ulcerative keratitis, uveitis, or glaucoma were missed. The goal of this lecture is to heighten awareness of the differential diagnoses that may cause ocular hyperaemia and to define methods to differentiate these. We will look at eyes with conjunctivitis, keratitis, uveitis, glaucoma, and orbital disease.
