My precious Vander was diagnosed with glaucoma and subsequent right eye blindness last weekend. We are having a a lot of difficulty keeping pressure down in the eye. He fights and fights when we attempt to put drops in, so we decided to have the eye removed next week after conferring with our eye specialist. We want him to remain comfortable and we wish to focus our attention on the good eye and getting drops into it.
Vander had an autoimmune disorder that killed his platelets. He almost died last year from internal bleeding. In light of this, I am concerned about getting the silicone implant after the removal. I’m concerned his body will recognize it as foreign and his immune system will attack his body again.
Many thanks for your reply!
