Neovascularization of the iris was induced in cats by removing the vitreous and lens and creating a rhegmatogenous retinal detachment. The presence of new blood vessels on the anterior surface of the iris was verified from the second month onward by slit lamp examination, as well as by light microscopy six to twelve months after the operation. Control eyes undergoing vitrectomy and lensectomy, but without retinal detachment, did not develop rubeosis iridis. This model may allow investigation into causes and therapy of rubeosis iridis.
