Does he have any other allergies? If he does Cytopoint is an allergy medication that's injected by the Vet once a month and it really helps with all allergies and is very well tolerated. That poor boy looks miseable with is eyes if its only his eyes have you taken him to a veterinary ophthalmologist? Maybe he is having issues with the actual eye itself.

No, he does not have other allergies. We have tried injectable anti allergic drugs but havent worked for him. Ofcourse all this medication was given with the guidance and care of a veterinary doctor. We have consulted more than one.

I am concerned he may have some condition with his eyes then if he doesn't have allergies affecting the rest of his body. He really should see a veterinary ophthalmologist then so he can be evaluated properly a lot of these eye conditions do require a specialist. Eye problems are common in Boxers ulcers are a constant concern and scratches as well so those really need urgent attention. They can cause eye lid swelling.

If this is just isolated to his eye then I would suspect a scratch/ulcer. Your vet can stain the eye to check for this.
I would personally request a referral to an eye specialist.

I hope you can find one like Kaco said he needs his eyes stained to see if there are scratches or ulcers. I feel sorry for him that looks very painful. Regular Vets can only do so much that's why there are specialists.

Yes.. thats a major problem !! I am looking out for online consultations also.
I think its more allergic than anything because it flares up when he goes out into the grass for his daily chores.
But anti-allergic reduce it but not able to cure it.

An eye specialist diagnosed my Boxer with Meiobian cysts. They were on one eye lid, and I think related to autoimmune disease. We eventually had to do surgery on the eye lid.

Mendee has an issue like that after year or so of struggling with shots and antibiotics we are taking her to a dermatologist tomorrow to try to find what she is allergic to. We have changed food removed new things that were bought in the past year, before we rip out carpet we pray this will work.

The same here ...not much improvement after soo many meds. So what i am finding effective (Though not 100%) is to wipe his face with a wet towel as soon as he comes back from his walk. Anyways, do let me know what the Vet says.

See the two pics ... the redness has subsided a little but the white surrounding is still there. Before and after 15 days gap.
