No idea how much it costs. Sorry to hear the vet is not thrilled with how it looks. He's probably concerned because even thought it's lots better, it's still got a ways to go, which may mean the treatment needs to be changed to address a fungal infection.
If he has a fungal infection, of course, the sooner you get on top of that the better - you have a lot to lose and as you say, he's worth it. The 'up side' to a clinic is that they can make sure the meds are administered by putting a little tube into the eyelid which allows very frequent dosing of the meds and keep an eye on things to make sure the healing is progressing as it should.
