I was always told it was called a 'watch eye'. :)

My Gizmo has a moon blind eye. It is like a white/blue its actually kind of pretty but he actually is blind in it. But it doesn't bother him in the least.

My last horse had moon blindness.
He actually ended up having his eye removed. :(

Oh no! That stinks. He hasn't had any problems with his and he has had it for a long time now from what I know. I have only had him since August. But he hasn't had any issues with it thus far.

Oh he lived a long, full life...into his mid 30's! :)

It was sad to have his eye out though.

Well that's good. I know some horses do have to have thier out. Gizmo's hasn't seemed to bother him though. Sometimes he has a bad day with it and it leaks but I just give him a little aspirin and he gets all better. Hoping I won't have to get it removed down the road but if it starts hurting him then its better to.

My boy had progressed pretty fast, and he had uveitis frequently. My vet would give me atropine to dilate his pupil to relieve the swelling, which resulted in him not being able to go outside. It was a big pain and a mess, and he was miserable. He was on aspirin too. This was quite a few years ago so I'm sure there are better treatments out now.

Oh that really stinks. He hasn't had any problems with any of that thank god. It only bothers him every once in a while it actually hasn't acted up in like two months now. I hope that it doesn't get bad actually because I really think it looks pretty on him and gives him a little more personality and awesomeness.
