EYES

ENUCLEATION

Enucleation is the removal of the eye from the eye socket. This would usually have to performed if the pet suffered severe trauma of the eye or the eye is diseased or painful to the point of affecting the pet’s quality of life. After the surgery, management of the wound is important, where the cone collar has to be placed for the duration of the wound healing to prevent the pet from scratching and tearing the stitches.

ENTROPION

Entropion occurs when the eyelid curls inwards such that the eyelashes irritate the cornea of the eye. If left alone, it would cause irritation, pain, ulceration or perforation. Surgical entropion repair involves the removal of a section of the skin from the affected eyelid to reverse the inward rolling. After the surgery, management of the wound is important, where the cone collar has to be placed for the duration of the wound healing to prevent the pet from scratching and tearing the stitches.

PROLAPSED THIRD EYELID REPAIR

Commonly known as Cherry Eye, it occurs when the gland behind the third eyelid prolapsed, appearing as a red mass protruding from the back of the third eyelid. Replacement of the third eyelid gland is a surgical procedure that involves the repositioning of the gland back behind the third eyelid. After the surgery, management of the wound is important, where the cone collar has to be placed for the duration of the wound healing to prevent the pet from scratching and tearing the stitches.
