I feel a little out of place sharing this with all the sadness on the board today.
We had a vet appt. yesterday, and he's gone completely blind in his bad eye. Must have happened so quickly, because on Tuesday he could still see out of it.
He's having a wee bit of trouble adjusting right now, I guess because it happened so quickly, but he should be fine I'm hoping.
It's not painful right now for him because the pressure is still fairly under control, but as soon as it starts to bother him, I think it'll be surgery time.
We made an appointment with his Optho, just to have her look at it as well (at our vet's suggestion).
So now's the part where I cross my fingers that the glaucoma never develops in his other eye as well.

Poor Sammy. I hope he makes the adjustment soon. Continued good thoughts and prayers on the way.
I'm sure his adjustment will go well...he's beautiful.

Poor guy. Hope he has an easy time adjusting.
I am sorry for your Sammy and I hope he will adjust quickly.
I'm sorry Kimmers...will pray that Sammy adjusts quickly and that the glaucoma doesn't develop in his other eye.
