    -image-jpg-image-jpg-image-jpgHi, did you ask the vet if the red should be visible? Blossom didn't have that after her surgery, she had some swelling, where the eye looked like it was smaller or a little closed, but there was no red showing on her eye.

    here is a pic of before and after her Cherry eye surgery

    According to my vet, Brutus had the worst case of cherry eye he had ever seen. Brutus had it in both eyes as well. Since it was so severe, there was a significant amount of swelling and redness. From the look of the repair, It looks like lily had big cherries as well. As I know you will be, be vigilant about putting in the antibiotic drops and the steriod ointment. It really helps. Good luck. By the way Brutus' eyes are beautiful now with no problems so you did the right thing. They will get better. I just wish the vets would warn about how scary it can look afterwards.

    So the red lover eyelid is normal? Yes lily cherries got bigger over the few months she developed them at 10 weeks surgery done 3 days ago around 4,5 months
    I did read up (thanks EBN) that they look bad after the surgery but each day passing i watch her like a eagle ;-) -and me being me -im freaking out

    When it comes to my boy I am a bit of a worrier also. It was normal for Brutus. It really took a couple of weeks for the swelling to go down and the eyes to look normal. I would watch her and as long as the swelling is a bit less each day without any goopy discharge I would be comfortable saying it is normal. I also did not have the cone of shame on Brutus. Just be careful Lily is not rubbing her eyes on anything. Brutus was good. Sometimes I think the cone makes things worse.

    Thank you xxxx
    I need to get to see a vet as i don't like the look of her right eye -it looks like cherry is still there and all the swelling added to -lets hope im wrong
    Vet only gave us 4 days worth of anti inflammatory drugs and an eye drops ( antibacterial ) that lili used since her cherry popped out ... But it doesn't look like shes in any pain , We are watching her closely and keel shy away from her eyes so she wont lick them x
