Other Eye Going Blind?
Just to start off the vet is coming on Friday, it wasn't an emergency and he already had an appointment for friday so I will ask him or her about it then.
Anyways I think Gizmo is loosing vision in his other eye now. I was told when I bought him that it wasn't spreading but its sometimes something you can prevent and sometimes it just spreads, especially when they have it in one eye already like he does. It has had this shade of blue to it since I have had him but it has only been runny one time and I washed it out with eye wash and gave him some aspirin and it got better quickly. But I was really looking at it today and yesterday and I can see where his pupil is if you look really hard at it but its very small not like a normal pupil and he has one small white speck on the inside of it as well. But I haven't had any trouble with it or any real signs. He just has been a bit spooky lately with riding, but that's mostly because he hasn't been ridden on the road since November or so.
What do you guys think about what I see in his eye, oh I have been testing his reactions to things like putting my hand in that eye and stuff, his reaction times are ok... he reacts when I get close but farther away he doesn't really, but that might be because I am not close.
Either way I still love him and would ride him. I just wish the poor horse could have one eye to see out of, poor thing has had pretty bad luck all his life.
