Common findings included corneal fibrosis, cataracts, and asteroid hyalosis. The most common ophthalmic abnormality in this species was cataracts.
Myopic vitreopathy and asteroid hyalosis are also common causes of vitreous floaters [3].
Whether or not to replace a removed lens and the anatomic location of the new lens are decided based on surgeon experience, patient age, the condition of the posterior capsule, and the patient's other ocular pathologies (glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, asteroid hyalosis, low endothelial cell count, increased corneal thickness).
