Beasley just begs you to look at him. With his black facial markings, he almost looks like a pirate with an eye patch because as you look closer, you see that Beasley only has one eye. That doesn’t stop this lively Jack Russell/Beagle mix. On the contrary, you might say he’s also got a pirate’s swagger.
Beasley’s story is somewhat long and complicated. He had cataract surgery and did well for 2 years, then developed glaucoma in one eye. Beasley’s veterinary ophthalmologist Stacy Andrew, DVM, ACVO, along with his owner, determined that the optimal treatment for him was the remove the right eye. “This eliminated his pain and eliminated his needs for medications,” explains Connie Day, Beasley’s “mom.”
However, one year later, Beasley suddenly lost sight in his remaining eye and needed a procedure to reattach his retina. Dr. Andrew knew of only three veterinary ophthalmologists in the country that could perform such a procedure – the closest was in Virginia. Beasley’s owner didn’t hesitate, and the quick decision was instrumental in a successful procedure, ultimately saving the sight in his left eye. “Not only do you have a level of expertise and specialty care at GVS, you also have doctors who know where to refer for the really rare procedure,” says Day. “You know the doctors at GVS really care.”
