Some horses are good candidates for a conjunctival flap graft. This surgical procedure relocates a flap of live tissue from the edge of the eye (the pink inner part of the eyelid), which is then sutured over the affected area of the cornea. The graft brings blood supply to the area to promote healing. This procedure requires general anesthesia and is not suitable for all cases. It may also result in additional scarring. In more serious cases, corneal transplant grafts are becoming a more accepted treatment. This procedure also leaves a very significant scar, however saving the eye and the horse’s sight is the goal and this procedure can be helpful in achieving success.
