I mentioned in the last post that Max had his post-cataract surgery check-up on Tuesday. While his eyes had healed nicely from the surgery, our ophthalmologist, Dr. Sarah Hoy, did notice that small webs of protein clots had developed just in front of his new lenses. This is not unusual, and is "fixed" with the injection of what she called "clot busters," which would clear up his vision. In the photo above, that's the frame Dr. Hoy inserted to hold Max's lids open for the procedure.
Here she is injecting the clot buster into the eye:
She had previously "sedated" the corneal surface so Max doesn't actually feel this.
Here is the other eye having the same thing done to it:
He passed all his other visual "tests" and will have another re-check in four to six weeks. And now with the cone off, he's acting and looking like any other dog now. Well ... except for the diaper, that is.
