Sometimes pets get sever corneal ulceration (an infection on the surface of the eye) that potentially can cause rupture of the eyeball itself. Suturing a flap from the conjunctiva onto the cornea is an excellent surgical technique that promotes corneal healing and allows the eye a chance to heal and hopefully prevent the need for enucleation (i.e. removal of the eye itself). This cute fellow had the procedure three weeks ago and is healing well. He may look a little odd but at least he can still see!
