Ruptured Eye/Perforating Trauma of the Eye
  • Chava's Medical Thread
    Chava, a female, ruptured her eye. Many photographs show the healing process.



  • Should I worry? Lazy "rag doll" pig
    Poppy, a female, ruptured her eye, possibly due to a bite from another guinea pig. The vet removed part of the damaged cornea during surgery. She received antibiotics for the infection and Atropin ointment for the eye. The vet stitched a "tissue-bridge" using dissolvable stitches to protect the cornea as it healed.
