    My cockapoo was diagnosed with juvenile cateracts at 18 months old. He had cataract surgery on his right eye at 2 and then surgery on the left eye at 3 1/2. He’s now 6 1/2 and yesterday i learned he has gone blind in his right eye from glaucoma (which has been diagnosed right before the left eye surgery and controlled with drops) and retinal detachment. Right now he’s on pain medication and drops to make him comfortable. I’m weighing my options of doing the injection versus removing the eye versus a prosthetic eye. What are the pros but also mainly cons and side effects of each option?
    I’ve also read that if one eye gets glaucoma the other one will too- is that just for primary glaucoma or is that for secondary too?
