Thread: Eye Problem

  1. #1

    Unhappy Eye Problem

    I just noticed a hazy, cloudy patch on Misis eye ball. Her eyes do not look inflamed, no discharge etc.
    Anyone know what it could be?
    Corneal damage? Cataract?
    Would just like to know what you think before I take her to the vet tomorrow, as I'm pretty worried.
    Thanks!

    My first thought was a cataract.
    How old is Misi and do you mean on the pupil?

    Thanks 4socks

    Aussiemyf7,
    Yes, centre of the eye ball. Measures approx. 3mm high x 6mm wide. She came up for a cuddle and I thought she had something in her eye. Got a tissue to try and get it and realized it was on there.
    Misi is 5. Never had trouble before but does have some sort of eye defect ( I think from birth). The breeder never said anything about it, the vets have never been concerned about it and never gave it a name. It's really hard to explain but it's almost like a spasm where sometimes her eye seems to go really deep in the socket and out again-very,very quickly.
    Thanks

    Scarring maybe? When a Pug gets scratched in the eye, they are often left with a white hazy patch. Sometimes this fades over time, most times it remains for life though.

    I have seen umpteen Pugs with a white hazy mark on their eye.

    Is it right across the eye or just a patch?

    Just saw your next post. If it is in the centre, it could be the pupil and therefore I would imagine she is blind in that eye too because of whatever it is. The Vet or an eye specialist is needed it would seem.

    One of the Vets I used for many years in Vic is an eye specialist. He spent 8 years working with Rowan Blogg. Having Pugs I learnt never to mess around with eyes. Off to the Vet to have it checked as soon as possible just in case.

    Never use a tissue on an eye. It can do more harm than good. A damp cotton ball is better. I always keep an unopened bottle of artificial tears on hand just in case of eye injuries.

    Hope everything goes OK at the Vet tomorrow.
