    Hi,

    Not looking for advice, just would like to hear others experiences. My 8yo frenchie is prone to corneal ulcers, he gets them quite often. They usually heal within a few days of treatment but he’s had a very stubborn one which he got referred for a corneal debridement. He had this operation last Tuesday and a contact lens put in place to protect the eye and speed up healing, then the outer corner of the eye was stitched to hold the contact lens in place. I seen the contact lens yesterday while administering his eye drops but today I’ve noticed the contact lens has gone. I’ve called the surgeon who has booked him in tomorrow to have a look as from the photos I sent they think the ulcer still hasn’t improved.

    Has anyone else had similar experiences of the debridement not working and what was the next step?

    He’s back at the ophthalmologist tomorrow so I’m just wondering others experiences to know what to expect.

    TIA

    I am not sure anyone can advise on this. My boy had a corneal graft due to a necrotising ulcer. Just took advice from the specialist eye hospital. Took over a year of treatment but he was just a puppy, but saved his eye. Good luck and hope your appt went well
