Cat-Tracts in my Eye

Well the drops did the trick.  My eye is no longer red!  Which is good.  Dr. Flanary said the next thing to do is check the pressure in my eyes.  I didn't know what this involved or I wouldn't have agreed to it.  This Toto-Pen has to touch the surface of my eye for like a million minutes and then it tells what the pressure is in my eye.  Thank dog I had Buttercup to hold my paw through the whole thing! 

The pressure in my right eye, the eye with the cat-tracks, was 19.  It should be under 15.  

Dr. Flanary said that I need to continue my eye drops for another 6 weeks and recheck my eye pressure. 

So everynight momma or grandma tucks me in to bed, administers my eye drops and gives me a kiss on the head. 

This growing older stuff is for the birds!!!

Wags and Licks,
Mollie Jo & Buttercup


  1. I'm so glad that you got treatment right away. Hopefully the drops will work.


  2. Take care of those eyeballs, Mollie Jo. I inherited a condition called PRA and I'll eventually lose my sight, but my medicine is really helping me a lot right now so I'll be able to see a lot longer than without the meds. You need your eyeballs so you can take care of Buttercup!


  3. Definitely take care of those eyeballs! Miss TaiChi wasn't ever keen on that thingy that poked her in the eye to take her eyeball pressure, if you stay on top of it, you'll be able to keep an eye on your servants for many years to come!

  4. You take care and take it easy. Our ancient Pip says being old sucks too. Sending POTP to you. Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  5. You have some pretty great people taking care of you and putting the med drops in your ye every night. They love you lots.

  6. At least you get some snuggles and kisses along with your medicine. We hope it helps you keep your eyes working well.

  8. It sounds like you are being really good about it. I don't like that kind of stuff. I hope it helps you lots and lots.
