  • Inherited/Pannus
  • Persistent pupillary membrane iris to iris

CERF Testing Requirements and Costs

Some eye problems require lab tests and samples to be sent in for testing, these are Collie Eye Anomaly (CEA) and
Hereditary Cataracts (HC), Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA). 

Currently Aussies need to have a CERF exam to have their eyes cleared of any problems, but CEA is becoming a concern for Aussies and should be looked at for overall health.
