Eyes : Puppy showing differences in eyes

Please help. We took Rocky to the vet to have him checked out after we got him from a breeder . He is almost 2. Our vet said he was in perfect health so we were so happy . Last week we noticed his eyes look different . I plan on taking him to a different vet ( more expensive ) however I was hoping to get help from other opinions on this forum. ?????? thank you so much for any advice.

Is the photo taken in natural light or with a flash? Are you seeing the difference with your own two eyes or just going by photograph?

Just asking, as I once went into a panic thinking my dog was loosing teeth and had my husband phone the vet and make an appointment only to realize his gums flopped over them sometimes.

Photo's sometimes lie, and sometimes they reveal. The pupils should reflect light, not reflecting light would be a 'phone the vet' issue.

The photos above were taken with a flash. Here are photos without flash.

I would take him to the vet. From the photos it's looks as if he is going blind in that eye or as something wrong with them. A vet check is a must.

Yes, ditto. I was just checking to see if it was a flash or camera angle effect. Looks like the answer is nope, there is marked difference. Phone vet... sorry, hope it all works out.

You definitely need to have him checked by a Vet. It almost looks like a cataract may be forming in the one eye, but that would be unusual, not impossible, in a 2 year old. Update us after your Vet visit.

Sorry, that's too bad. Did your Vet talk about treatment for him. Does it affect one eye or both? There is the traditional surgical cure, and there are drops that are fairly new, approved for use on dogs, not yet for people. The drops as I understand, will gradually dissolve the protein that causes the film or cloudiness of the lens. Certainly worth at least a conversation with your Vet.

Vet recommended seeing an ophthalmologist for treatment options. Thanks!
