Dent on eyeball

Hello everyone I wanted ask some opinions we have a vet appointment today but thought I'd ask if anyone knows what this could be,

I noticed Clay was squinting yesterday had a look a his eye and could see nothing today I had a look and see one small dent and a much larger dent on his eyeball.

He does have a history of lipid deposits in his eyes but I've never seen this before and it's concerning me hence the vet appointment today.

Pictures below thanks

I once had a dog with a corneal ulcer condition that required drops, and periodic scraping of the eye by the vet (or ideally vet ophtholmalogist). It was a very painful condition to manage -- if you're facing anything like that, or any long-term/chronic eye issue, I would ask for a referral to a specialist. They have better, specialized diagnostic tools and more treatment options than regular vets do.

Thank you both for your replys.

We have just got home from the vets and yes it is corneal ulcers he had a whopping six in the eye pictured in my first post and a small one in the other he has two sets of drop to be applied three times daily and another vets appointment on Saturday to see how the eyes are looking she did say it was unusual to see so many in a single eye

In the meantime if the condition worsens he is to go back straight away as they considered eyes an emergency definitely hope they do not get worse.

I have no idea how these ulcers came about
Hopefully there is nothing sinister going on.

Thanks.

Now that you know that they're happening, going to see a vet ophthalmologist would be a Very Good Idea to look carefully into the back of the eye, check eye pressure, and do a full eye exam. If your regular vet can't help with a referral, here's a link to the national directory to find one:
http://www.acvo.org/ophthalmologist-search

Eyes are one of the things I usually don't trust to regular vets -- they're too complex, and the equipment needed for optimal diagnosis simply isn't in their possession usually. My vet ophthalmologist has been very important for the health of my dogs, over the years.
