My dog has had clear white dots right in the middle of BOTH of his eyes for some time now. I'd say 2 months or so, but could have been longer due to the fact that they are simply very hard to notice by eye unless you catch it in the right angle/light.
When I first discoverd them 2 months or so ago, I thought nothing of it. I thought since dogs play in the sun, and they look up into the sun while you throw stuff, perhaps their eyes get burnt by sunlight or something stupid like that.
Well for whatever reason I became concerned and started doing searches online, and learned those are not normal. So I went to my local vet, and she said it could possibly be pannus, but is very easily treated by medication, and that I should just monitor its condition/growth if any, for the time being.
After the visit, I did some more reading into pannus, and also read an old post on this forum, and learned pannus is not as easily treated as my vet made it out to be, and can also lead to blindness. (My vet is great, and I like her, i'm not knocking her opinion here, just voicing my concern)
Here is another condition, known as corneal dystrophy, and this is pretty much how my dog's eyes look like. RIGHT in the center, in BOTH eyes, but it's CLEAR unlike what is shown in the picture, so very hard to see. Perhaps that's because it's in the early stages, I don't know.
Does anyone here have any experience with this? Can anyone please do me a favor and look into your dog's eyes and see if yours also have this tranluscent clear marking in the middle of the eyes?
I am thinking of taking him to an eye specialst for more conclusive testing.
I hope everyone's doing good.
*again, that picture is NOT my dog's, but from a website. my dog's white dot is more clear and transparent, and slightly smaller in size.
