We’re in the process of picking which breeder to go with and one has her clearance for eyes but it’s noted she has A3 Distichiasis. Her other two eye exams over the years were clear, most recent one noted the distichiasis.

I saw some older posts saying they wouldn’t worry as long as parents had the rest of their clearances, but just wanted to make sure that was still the case!

Both parents are CHIC qualified with OFA.

Thank you!

You could ask the breeder what they think. I’ve seen people mention here that the results can depend on time of year, like if they take half their dogs in winter and half in summer, and typically they only get Distichiasis results in X group. I think there are some breeds where it’s a much bigger problem than in Goldens. Are you able to tell if any of the siblings or her parents had eye tests that go back further?
