Pirenoxine ophthalmic solution, an anticataract drug for human use, was tested for its effectiveness in the treatment of senile incipient cataract in dogs. Of 18 cases treated with the drug, 13 (72.2%) cases responded favorably resulting in improved lens opacity or delayed progress of the disease. Hyperemia and epiphora, both being local sensitive symptoms, were obsereved in one case. Improved lens opacity was noticeable after medication for 81.6 days on average, and the effect was pronounced in younger cases with cortical cata-ract.
