    Default Worry wart strikes again - eye question

    I noticed that one of Herman's eyes has always looked bigger than the other, but I figured it was just the 'eye liner' and shadows, etc. And they always seemed kind of red (I just figured his eyes were naturally red, until I learned it might be allergies). So I pay a lot of attention now to see how red they are when we come outside.

    So, today in my investigation, I noticed that one looks bigger because its not black in the inner corner like the other. I can never get him to look at me directly so I was finally able to see it today. I found a picture that shows this so you can see what I'm talking about. In the eye on the left, everything is pink - in the one on the right its all black.

    Is this just pigment? Is it a problem with the third eyelid? Am I just over-paranoid? LOL

    it's possible one eyelid is a bit droopier than the other, that's all I'm seeing from the picture...is he bothered by it? Scratching, keeping it shut, eye-boogers more in that one than the other? Nictitating membranes (the "third" eye lid) shouldn't be an issue unless you suspect cherry eye problems...
    Mainly the photos look fine, but keep an eye out for a cherry eye, that could be an issue in the future.

    Thanks @Taylor - its not bothering him. Seems like he's always had it. The lower lids are the same, but it looks like either the membrane (black) is only showing on his left eye, or the one on the right is a different color (?).

    Banks' eyes are like this too.... our vet said it is nothing at all and is just a discoloration

    I can sence a bit of over-paranoia there, but we've all been there....from what I can see in the pic it's just pigmentation.

    Yes!


    LOL


    Just Kidding.... Herman has great eyes!!! seriously... dont believe me go thru the pix and look at some of them. His eyes are clear and wide open. That's what you look for..... minor redness isn't a great concern.

    ps: I just want to just give him a big smoooch on his cutsey nose.. LOL

    His eyes look great to me! One of Jackson's eyes is lined w/ black and the other isn't, so it makes it look like one of his eyes is bigger than the other. We just say he has a "black eye and a white eye" lol

    Ok, thanks all for the reassurance that I still have my status of a worry-wart LOL

    I just wanted to make sure that it wasn't an indication of something wrong with my baby's eye that I can prevent now

    @BruceP - that's his own little pet doggie on his nose (a guy at the vet pointed out that it was shaped like a dog). LOL but it seems to be filling in now, slowly.
