Abstract

The recent report by Townsend and Gornik aims to provide more reliable data on the prevalence of two common but poorly understood ocular conditions of Golden Retrievers: uveal cysts and pigmentary uveitis (PU). The study is well designed in terms of patient selection and examination methods, and high degree of disease ascertainment and diagnostic consistency was obtained by having all examinations performed by a single board-certified veterinary ophthalmologist. Even though this and two other studies suggest that these two conditions may perhaps be part of a broader disease complex, there is, as yet, no conclusive evidence of such an association.
