See my pretty green eyes?  That's not natural!  I went to an Eye Specialist today.  The eye guy says I have dry eyes cos I don't produce tears.  Normal tear production is above 15 mm, my R eye is only at 5 mm and my L eye is at 8 mm. too low.  Sounds like this has been going on for a long-time.  Aboot two weeks ago, mom noticed I wernt seein too well.   The eye guy said my eyes were so clouded over he couldn't see in them at all.   He says I see aboot as well as if I were looking out a dirty window.   He gave mom some eye drops and eye ointment.  We go back in about 6 weeks to check again.  I should produce tears by then.  Then over the next year, he hopes I get at least 50% of my eye sight back.  The official diagnoses for both eyes:   Keratoconjunctivis sicca - uncontrolled,  Qualitative Tear File Deficiency - uncontrolled,  and Keratitis, Pigmentary - advanced.   Oh, I hope my meds work!

    1. Dr.Landry gave me 3 tests: Schirmer Tear Test Quantification, Fluorescein Staining (with TBUT); and Tear Back-up Time(with fl. staining). The Medications: Eye drops are Tacrlimus 0.03% solution aqueous 10 ml - twice a day for 2 weeks, then 1 time a day. and NeoPolyDex Ointment 3.5 g once a day. The Tacrolimus can only be gotten in 2 places here in Washington State, from them in Seattle or from the place that makes it for them in Paulsbo, WA.

  2. We will keep our paws crossed that your meds will help you see better.

  4. Neon eyes are never good. ;-) In all seriousness, I'll be praying that the meds work great just as the doc hopes.

  5. Hope the meds work ... make sure you get extra treats!
