    DefaultThose of you with "one-eyed Jacks"

    Or in other less humorous terms, dogs who are living with one eye.
    If they had it surgically removed, did you opt to have an "implant" put in place to give the illusion of the eye in there when the lid is closed, or just leave the eye socket empty and then sewn shut?
    I've been told having an implant for Sammy wouldn't be a good option because he's so active etc...I know which way we're leaning when the time comes, but I'm just curious if anyone on here has opted for the implant?

    My cocker had one of his removed. The vet did an excellent job of closing it up. It never caved in or anything ... He was older when he lost his eye and it was touch and go with the other one. Here is a pic of him without his eye. God rest his sweet soul!

    I think I would opt to have it closed up. I would be worried about an implant popping out... which would really gross me out. Also, I don't know how much care there is to implant, but I don't think I could do it (again, it's just a gross factor for me).

    Raian, it wouldn't be like a glass eye sort of thing....the lid is also sewn shut with the implant. What it does is give the illusion that there is still an eye under there, just closed up.
    Without the implant it's just flat.
    An actually "eye implant" isn't an option for us, he's too young and too active, and it's just not really what we want for him.

    here are a couple of pics of hunter.* no implant.





    you can see the hollow where his eye used to be.* the surgery went really well and it healed over very nicely.

    i'd vote for no implant, but that's just me.

    Here is my happy girl...., actually to us it just looks like her eye is closed, now that it's heald nice. It is strange seeing the pics of WHEN she had her eye. One of my friends the other day had to ask," Is that Daisy, WITH 2 eye?" Just like with people, thats her now & hard to remember "when she did have 2 eyes".

    My one eyed WONDER!
    A group of work friends came over on the weekend, they were ALL amazed, DAISY, is the FASTEST of ALL the girls. Sight has NOTHING to do with her speed as long as MOM does NOT move ANYTHING in the FIELD!!!!! GO DAISY!!!

    My friends' Italian Greyhound lost her sight in one eye, and they went with the implant... it's actually Maddy's eyeball surrounded by some kind of prosthesis. They took an impression of the socket, and custom fit the prosthesis.

    They too were worried that it might pop out, also given sighthounds' bulgy eyes to begin with, but so far so good. If you don't know any better, you can't even tell, just that the eye itself doesn't move.

    Kim, thanks for the explanation. If it were sewn in there, with little to no possiblities of infection, I would opt for the implant to give it a more natural appearance.

    A friend of mine has a poodle mix who lost her eye due to glaucoma. She has a glass eye and it looks great. I didn't even know the dog had the surgery until the owner told me.
