    if you do have surgery make sure they don' remove the 3rd eye lid (the cherry eye) because it contains one of the lacrimal ducts which put fluid into the eye otherwise your dog will suffer permanent dry eye.Which could lead to blindness if eye drops/ointment are not given for the rest of their lives.
    They need to tuck in the cherry eye back in place.

    Good Luck

    My frenchton has a cherry eye that makes an appearance here and there. Over the years we learned how to make it go away. We take a baby wipe and gently wipe the corner of his eye in a downward motion and 99% of the time it goes away. The only time it does not go away is when he has allergies. We give him Benadryl a And wait an hour then repeat the baby wipe process. It has worked for us for last 4 years because we can make it go away we never saw a point in surgery.

    Sorry didnT know this thread is still active lol. Thank you guys for your tips! We haven't been to a specialist yet because i want to go to Leipzig University which is about 2- 3 hours drive from here. There they have a vet who specializes on brachycephalic dogs and we would be able to get a hold of an opthalmologist too. I cant drive and my husband doesnt have any freetime yet but im very much aware time is clicking.

    No drops, just a simple rub and it goes away. A cherry eye is simply the third eyelid's gland showing - though it looks like an inflammation it is not. So drops are not needed if you can make it go back in place. But if you start noticing it redder than usual, thick discharge and/or excessive watering of the eye (for a few hours) then you should see a vet because it could be a sign of infection.

    I use the same pressure rubbing the corner of his eye as I would cleaning his wrinkles. Our vet is also aware of his cherry eye and told us that we could get it removed but since what we are doing works she didn't recommend it.
