Merlin: Glaucoma & ISP

Sometimes we can’t save an eye, but we want our pet to be comfortable. Merlin, an older Husky developed glaucoma (high pressure) in his right eye. This painful condition led to blindness is this eye. The decision was made to place an ISP (intrascleral prosthesis – silicone ball) inside his eye instead of removing his eye to make him pain free. His owner reports that most people don’t initially realize that he has lost his right eye. He copes very well with only one good eye and is a healthy happy dog.
