You might remember that Benny sees an animal opthamologist twice per year. He has cataracts in both eyes and glaucoma in his right eye, requiring two different eye medications.
He had an appointment yesterday, and I was going to bring my camera. Well, I forgot the camera in the rush home from work to the clinic. . .
As usual, Benny was a great patient, even tolerating three exams. Since his eye condition is rather rare, two doctors usually examine him--his regular doctor and either a student doctor or, in this case, a doctor that's newer to the clinic.
The good news is that the growth the doctor saw at the last appointment is most likely not cancer; based on the shape of the growth, it's probably a cyst. The bad news is that it grew larger in size. I was assured that it is not causing him pain or pressure.
Thankfully, things have stabilized with his eyes. I tried to get a photo of his bad eye. He has interesting pigmentation in that eye because of the glaucoma. Benny would not cooperate for a photo, and this is the best that I got:
