Leroy has something funky going on with his eyes. I think he might have a sight problem, but my professor wont let the vet look at him for a while yet. Something about his eyes just don't look right. Maybe he is a little pig eyed? Maybe they are off set? I just don't know, what do you think?
Yes he does at times. He has a big issue with people coming towards him and touching him. Also he will walk up to something, then jump as if he didnt see it. The teachers agree that his eyes don't look quite right.
Are you referring to his left eye? I have no idea what it could be but it seems as if either his eye is slightly bulged in the socket or his "brow bone" area is large which makes his eye look a bit off. Posted via Mobile Device
Yup, I see it. Then when I read he is only 2, I was shocked. The areas sunken in above his eyes belong to an older horse, not a young'un. Unfortunately, I have no idea what it might be though.
Visions tests for horses are rather limited. Basically the vet can only tell you if he can see or not, and if his peripheral vision is limited. There is no test to check for visual accuity in horses. Still needs to be looked into though. Something is going on there, IMO.
I think what everyone is seeing is just his slightly atypical skull shape. He's not deeply recessed above the eyes--maybe more than the typical two-year-old, is all, but that can also just be a matter of bone structure, tiredness, or dehydration. His eyes are perhaps set broad and hooded, but the most that should affect is maybe a slightly lesser angle of vision that the average horse (slightly bigger blind spots). If he does have any vision problems, it's coming from his internal eye anatomy, not the head as you see it.
Is it your horse? Or a school horse? If its your horse, why can a professor decide whether the vet can see him or not? If he is your horse, then get a vet to check out his eye, both for your worries and if it is an eye issue, they need to be taken care of and not let go.
