Rabbits were anaesthetized with ketamin hydrochlorid and xylazine.
Miosis, conjunctival congestion, corneal endem, and an increase of the light scattering in the anterior shallow lense cortex were observed. These observed changes were much more pronounced in rabbits under systemic anaesthesia. The observed changes were much mor pronounced in the anaesthesied group. The changes dissapeared within a week. Ocular temperature was found to be 2-9°C higher in the anaesthezied rabbits.
