The orneriness in me today...after having to deal with the in laws while getting over the flu and having my son sick as well. Has made me so ornery that I would have to add. The only thing deserving of the first vet would be a poop pile placed in a box and mailed to them...For that's the sort of treatment they gave you. You might as well give it back.
I'm glad to hear that your second opinion...gave you good advice prior to seeing them. And they sound knowledgeable with eye issues. Just reading what you've learned via phone conversation. Has put my mind at ease that they are going to get to the proper diagnosis.
