My name is Buddy and I am 6yrs old. I was taken to be checked over by the vet, because my eyes did not look quite right. The vet confirmed that I was blind in one eye and only partially sighted in the other. It was cataracts that was causing this. He thought I may have been born with eye problems. Finally after putting up with this for 6 years, someone was going to be kind enough to try and help me. If I could have an operation then hopefully my sight might be restored. It had been difficult for me in my previous home, spending too much time alone and not being able to see properly.
Such operations do not come cheap, but everyone has rallied around to find the best eye surgeon for me. The bad news is the sight in my left eye has been lost forever. But I still have partial sight in my right eye. The surgeon has decided to leave this eye alone for the time being and I will be monitored. I got conjunctivitis in both eyes and scratched my left eye so badly it caused an ulcer. It was so sore. The surgeon fitted a contact lens to try to let it heal. After 2 days it came out. I didn’t want anyone to put the 3 times daily drops in. I wriggled and struggled but I never snapped at anyone. I had to visit the vets twice daily for 2 weeks, but it paid off and I no longer have conjunctivitis. I have also got rid of the dreaded Buster collar for now.
For the first time I have been able to be more Springer like and have been enjoying the park with my canine companion.
