Removal of the eyes was not discussed with the vet today only the explanation about the lens removal. Obviously I will now go along to the specialist as recommended but wanted to understand more about the options so as to ask the right questions following the consultation. I am concerned about the aftercare following the lens removal and knowing Jimmy he is likely to develop some kind of secondary condition as we seem to live at the vets bless him! Would it be right to ask for the option of full eye removal to be an option in the hope that he can be relatively pain free with reduced need for after care? Also not that money is particularly an issue and he is fully insured luckily I have no idea what these procedures may cost?
Thank you so much for your help. At the end of the day I just do not want Jimmy to suffer unnecessarily. He already copes remarkably well with the blindness and now I feel it is so important to make the right decision for the long term as I would not be able to put him through numerous procedures and see him suffer! I feel more enabled to go to the specialist and initiate a full discussion and have gained a greater understanding of the after effects of both options. Thank you Elaine x
