After being away from home for three days, I noticed my 9-month-old's left retina is silver. This is definitely something that is very new. It reflects the light like mad! I haven't noticed any changes to his right eye. There may be some cloudiness but that could also be an overprotective mom worried about her baby. But the left retina is definitely silver!
We have set up an appointment with the vet on Tuesday (the 16th) but I can't stop thinking about it. I'm afraid it may be some sort of congenital disease that may ultimately leave him blind (maybe Progressive Retinal Atrophy?). It doesn't seem to bother him any which is both good and bad. I'm hoping for an infection that can be easily cleared up... but since his eye isn't bothering him that seems unlikely.
I know dogs are not affected by blindness in the way people are, but I still don't want that to happen to my baby. Has anyone else experienced anything of this nature? Infections? Experience with PRA?
