Eye injuries are common in horses and are an emergency

  • Eyelid lacerations
  • Corneal scratches/ulcers
  • Blunt trauma
  • Puncture of the eye

What do I do?

  • Catch your horse to get a closer look
  • If the eye is bleeding you can apply gentle pressure with a clean cloth

  • If not properly treated eye injuries can become worse in a hurry
