Please tell me I'm seeing things

Can someone tell me I'm just seeing things. There has been no change in her eyes since I got her, no un-natural drainage or swelling. She' not bothered if I touch her eyes (she actually seems to like it if I just place my hand over her eyes). But they just don't look "right" to me.

Please excuse the long eye whisker in the 1 picture, we're trying to grow it for the Guinness Book of World Records, LOL

The first picture is her left side, the second is her right.

They just seem more "blue" in the cornea(?) than I'm used to.

They look fine to me? Do you ride her, does she do well? Even if she does have some sort of cataract, if she is functioning with it I wouldn't worry about it. I have known.....2 people? with partially/mostly blind horses that they rode for pleasure.

If she seems happy, and you are happy with her, don't sweat the small stuff.

Best to get a picture in the afternoon or Am sun. I have a horse with a cataract and that is the best way to show it. The day i got him, i saw that his inner structure was GREEN as the cataract developed. Everything else looked normal tho. You still cant tell unless you know what to look for.

One of my geldings has the same color eyes and hes perfectly fine. Great vision. Thats not a cataract. My dog also has the same thing going go. Vet looked at them and said there were no issues what-so-ever with her.

He has beautiful eyes... Does it seem alittle puffy under the eyes? Also one looks like it has a scratch under it not big just a lil line.

Yes they do look like Chimp eyes...but I don't see anything wrong either. I keep looking like something might jump out at me but, just don't see anything.

If wishes were horses, then beggars would ride.
