Abstract: The current study was conducted on six geriatric dogs with normal and cataractous eye lenses. The cataractous lens was opaque compared to the normal lens, whereas the lens of a normal dog appeared clear, soft, avascular, biconvex, and spherical. The dogs with normal as well as cataractous eye lenses had less convexity at the anterior surfaces than posterior surfaces. The weight and axial thickness of the lens of the cataractous dogs were more than the normal dogs. The Equatorial Diameter of the lenses in both groups of dogs did not differ considerably.
