Cataracts are an opacification of the lens in the eye. The most common cause of cataracts in rabbits is the presence of E. cuniculi.
- Cloudiness in the lens of the eye
- Liquefied lens material leaking
- Swelling or a white mass in the iris
- Swelling in the uvea, the middle layer of the eye that provides most of the blood supply to the retina.
- E. cuniculi is most common in dwarf breeds less than 2 years old, but can occur in any age or breed.
- Spontaneous juvenile cataracts
- Congenital and hereditary
- Swelling in the uvea
