Question On Eye

Recommended Posts

I just noticed this...extra vein type thing in her one eye in the sun yesterday. I went back through pictures and it's been there since we got her a month and a half ago. From what I can tell from the pictures, it hasn't changed, but I also don't normally take pictures of just her eyes! Is this a normal thing, or is it something to be worried about? Thank you!

Oh my, that looks scary. I'd get it looked at asap. From what you can tell it's not wiping away like a mucous build up?

Well spotted... Ask your vet if it's Thelazia californiensis or Thelazia Calliapaedia (parasitic worms)

No, it looks like it's inside the eye, rubbing it doesn't do anything.

I did make an appointment for tomorrow. I called and asked the vet who saw her in August with the adoption group, but they said they didn't have anything out of the ordinary in her chart.

Thats good. Please keep us updated as it's helpful for others in the future. In my experience a third eyelid looked a little different for me, but maybe? It certainly looks bizarre though. Don't do anymore rubbing though if you've tried to verify now. Do you know if she bumped into anything lately? Encounters with another pup that might have jumped up and scratched her?

A scratched cornea hurts like mad because every time you blink it gets rubbed. Eyes tend to swell shut when that happens but also heal quickly as the cornea heals extremely quickly. My two cents because I don't think it's that.

Pannus? After scratched cornea and Pannus, both which my vet swore he could treat, learn by my expenses. A vet ophthalmologist is your best bet. Much cheaper in the long run and far more accurate.

I believe Pannus is more of a cloudy halo on the perimeter....but perhaps that's also a straight across the centre? I agree there seems to be a little cloudy.... Where is Krissy when you need her?!?! :D

 

What is astounding is that it doesn't seem that she's affected by it. It looks like a ghastly injury, but I don't see any tearing up or mucous or pus or anything.

 

This "cut" on the eye is truly remarkable and I'm extremely curious to hear what the dr/vet/opto says!

annie's Pannus looks like brown/deep color pigmentation. it also started on the scalara(white) of the eye and over the years, even w/ consistent 6 month monitoring and meds , it has grown to reduce some of her peripheral vision(but she has no problem seeing the feral cats). it's a dark veiny look, started like some strange iris pigmentation on the scalara. even though she has had it for 4or 5 years it's still not cloudy.

 

when she had her first ulcerated cornea(cat incident) the only noticeable sign was the rubbing of her eye. the second cat or bird altercation resulted in a MRSA infection, which became very inflamed in a matter of a day or two. that was a royal pita- 4 meds a day! but she's fine.

Strongly second the recommendation to see a veterinary ophthalmologist. You probably need to see your vet first anyway, to get a referral, but be firm about a referral. A specialist sees more things in their area of training, and more often, than a general practitioner, so a referral is not a knock against your vet, but more like bringing in additional resources for a situation that calls for it.

Vet said he thinks it's something she may have been born with. Its like an adhesion on the eye, I believe he said it's a posterior synechiae, but it's not affecting her vision. Also did a blood test to check for high cholesterol, since that can also cause deposits in the eyes sometimes, but it came back normal. Said he can recheck to make sure not changing in 6 weeks.

annie has lipid deposits on her eyes as well.(she's a mess but finds those cats). they look like tiny translucnet white blobs. i looked at annie's Pannus in bright sunlight today- black spider veins is the best description w/ blackish blobs in the denser areas. not a cloudy overlay, just some small lipid deposits.

Wow, that's crazy about the pannus. Had no idea.
