Zeke the Diabetic Dog Has A Detached Retina

Zeke was diagnosed by his veterinary ophthalmologist, Dr. Easton, at Veterinary Vision in Rochester Hills, Michigan as having a detached retina in his right eye. Dr. Easton made the diatnosis by doing an ultrasound on Zekes right eye and she also did a test called a colorimeter.  After doing the tests she thought that his vitreous had just deteriorated and caused the retina to detach.   Dr. Easton prescribed Prednison eye drops for his right eye and said that getting the inflammation out of the eye might help the eye to heal but it was doubtful that he would get much vision back in the eye.   

Zeke had his cataract surgery done at this clinic by Dr. Ebbinger just over 4 years ago now.  Prior to the surgey Zeke was completely blind from cataracts caused most likely by his diabetes until the surgery so I am thankful that he got just over 4 extra years of vision.  Zeke has always received excellent care from both Dr. Easton and Dr. Ebbinger.  I highly recommend them if you are in Michigan and in need of a veterinary ophthalmologist.
