Abstract: The purpose of this study was to describe the ultrasonography appearance and measurements of normal buffalo eyes. Ocular ultrasonographic examinations were performed on 20 adult buffaloes. Transpalpebral ultrasonographic images were obtained with a 6-8 MHz linear transducer in the axial imaging plane. The ultrasonographic appearance of structures within the buffalo eye is similar to that in other species. When comparing measurements, the anteroposterior depth of the lens, vitreous chamber, and axial length of the globe on the left side were greater than on right, and the anterior chamber depth and scleroretinal rim wall thickness on the left side were also less than on the right side in each of the buffaloes, but these differences were not statistically significant. The knowledge of normal ocular dimensions facilitates the use of ultrasonography in the evaluation of ocular disease in animals.
