    Thanks for the explanation Shay. {shudders} Eye things really give me the creeps. Anyway, I am pleased to hear that this isn't as dangerous as it sounds. Keep us posted Terri.

    I have said this before on another post, but when my Marly had an eye problem the vet said it was his eye colour changing.

    I thought this was bizzare but in days it cleared up.

    Now though he doesnt have much 'white' in his left eye its almost all brown.

    It doesnt cause his a problem.

    Also his eyes are always filled with sand after dive bombing onto the beach !
    He hates them cleaned, so I think to myself 'stop rolling in the sand' and I wont have to clean them - silly dog !!

    They are actually supposed to have all brown eyes and no white -- that's the ideal for the breed. The changing colour wouldn't to my knowledge cause any actual problems but maybe the changing made it look as if there was a problem that wasn't there?

    Cherry eye is a recognised occasional problem in the breed, and cavaliers would be considered to have protruding eyes -- they are oversized compared to most breeds and do stick out more, making them a bit more vulbnerable and also more prone to problems like cherry eye, dry eye, etc). The UK CKCS website lists it here: http://www.cavaliers.co.uk/articles/...conditions.htm. Sometimes it requires surgery.

    Default White of eye

    Hello,

    I have had a girl who developed cherry eye, it was pretty scary looking and she did have to have surgery, you'd never know that now though, even when she went for her eye exam for her certificate the opthalmologist didn't pick up the surgery until I mentioned it to him! It isn't a heriditary problem, just as Karlin said, an occassional problem due to the actual eye size and shape. My Opthalmologist, Ian Mason told me that the eye will actually heal more quickly than any other part of the body as it has no actual blood supply to carry the infection around and spread it further.
