Degeneration of the Iris in the Eye in Cats

ADVERTISEMENT

Treatment

 

Iris atrophy is not reversible, so much of the treatment is designed to target the underlying disease that has caused it, or to halt the progression of the disease. 

 

Living and Management

 

Due to the nature of this medical condition, it is possible that it will continue to progress as your cat ages.
