We have 2 creams to apply for 10 days. We have a recheck with the vet in 7 days to see how it is progressing. The vet put the lampshade on him because everytime he rubs his eye he is actually tearing it more.maddy_mae\";p=\"58954 said:How long will you have to wait to find out if the creams are working or not??? Get well soon, Tyson! Hopefully it is a quick recovery
I asked the vet about that and he said that his vision should be fine afterwards and we should not worry about it. The vet said during the surgery they would trim the rough edge of the tear on the cornea and then scratch it in a crosshatch pattern which will promote the healing and then sew the eyelid shut to let it heal. Thanks for the thoughts and healing vibes--It really means a lot to us.Mastray\";p=\"59028 said:Poor baby!! Did they mention his vision? Will he be able to see out of that eye still?
We had that happen to a ferret. The cat got her eye... they gave us meds like that too. Said she could still she because of where the tear was but now that it's healed her eye has a bulge on it... just a little one but she can still see.
Hubby had PRK surgery done. That's where they "brush off" your cornea and let it heal/grow back and you'll have 20/20 vision again (like lasik but better). Anyway, he was finally almost healed with Sarah at 5 months was moving her arms around like crazy in bed with us and her nail scratched his cornea. It was painful of course... and basically when it healed back over it left a slight haze... so it's harder for him to see out of that eye... definitely not 20/20. During the briefing of the surgery they say to keep your eyes closed AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE FOR THE FIRST 48 HRS. Of course you can't just tell a dog to keep his eyes closed.
Good luck with the healing... hopefully it heals QUICKLY and EVERYTHING can be back to normal again! Odin and I are sending HEALING VIBES Tyson's way!! Please keep us posted!!
