So I just freaked out a client when I told her her golden had iris cysts..went into the discussion that all Goldens with golden retriever uveitis have iris cysts, but not all dogs with iris cysts will get GR uveitis. The ophthalmologist called me after she examined the dog, got interesting info from her, but what she said does not jive with what I know anecdotally...

Thanks so much for all your advice and added information - I decided to get a referral to a vet ophthalmologist - I will feel more confident in seeing him and helping us properly treat Maggie (and diagnose) etc....I feel so bad for her as this spot in her eye is quite large and I'm sure it obstructs her vision. It came on so suddenly - thanks again
