Eddie Murphy is a 6 year old beagle who was named by one of out grandsons. We found Eddie at a shelter in Florida when he was a little puppy. He is a charming little guy, he loves people, other dogs, cats, bugs, everything!!!
I always thought he had such big eyes but never thought it was a problem and no vet ever mentioned it. But recently he began bumping into things so we took him to our vet and she referred us to a specialist. Sadly he was diagnosed with primary inherited glaucoma, buphthalmia, and lens subluxation In both eyes. One eye is blind and the other has limited vision.
We were given meds for reducing the pressure in both eyes. We have a follow up appointment scheduled. The doctor gave us plenty of information and pricing estimates for all the possibilities for both eyes. Removal of the blind eye has been mentioned.
I’m so glad that I found this website, thank you all for sharing information and experiences. I am hoping for many more years with my little buddy regardless of the outcome of any of this. He is a wonderful companion and I love him dearly.
