Question:My dog has glaucoma & my vet wanted to remove the eye ball & we decided not to have this done. My question is he in pain other than when i touch his eyes? i know when i touch them they hurt because he pulls away & cries. Is he in a contant pain that would make him uncomfortable?

Answer:This decision is best made by discussion with you and/or your local veterinarian. I would prefer you get second opinion from vet eye specialist in your area who can best make the determination of degree of pain and/or need to remove eye. I would also ask about making sure any potential glaucoma in other eye is also being addressed
