Abstract

A 4-year-old male mixed-breed cat was evaluated with a history of the presence of a reddish mass in the left eye medial corner. Ophthalmic examination revealed prolapse of the third eyelid gland, conjunctival secretion and hyperemia. The animal underwent gland replacement surgery using the modified Morgan technique. After surgery, clinical signs improved on the first day. The cat was observed for 2 years after surgery and there was no recurrence of the condition. The surgical technique was effective in resolving the condition.
