I know a lot of you read this thread http://www.sugarglider.net/ubbthreads/ub...true#Post173086
about Sophie and her birth problems.

One of the boys detached tonight and he is missing an eyeball! cry I got to hold him and he doesn't have any other deformaties, except for where there are always two bulges under the closed eye, one is missing. The other baby hasn't detached, but appears to be normal and has both eyes.
I still can't find my camera cord and have a new one being shipped, so I can't upload any pics yet.

Has anyone ever heard of this? Any advice?

Does the eyelid appear damaged at all? Or is the eyeball just missing from the socket without any lid damage? If the lid is damaged, his mother may have injured him. If not, then it may be a congenital deformity. Either way, a vet check is in order to make sure the joey is healthy otherwise.

No, nothing is damaged, it looks like a normal closed joey eye, just missing the bulge. He is all the way back inside of Sophie's pouch nursing right now. He is otherwise healthy looking, a good size, a good strong cry.

It does sound like a birth defect rather than an injury if the lid hasn't been damaged at all.

Here are the pics that I took of the little guy. I know that it is a birth defect(and I wonder if that was him that I kept picking up from the drop pan), but my question is has anyone ever had this happen/have any advice for us? He is definitely going to stay here forever with me, but I would love to talk to someone that has seen/had this problem before. **thank you so much to Bourbon for helping me out in the birth defects thread hug2 **

I would wait until his eyes were open before getting too freaked out. Maybe for some reason or another, that eye just isn't bulged out the way the other one is... I've seen joeys with eyes that look like both of his (bulging and flat), usually it's dependant on their face shape, but there could be other factors...

Thanks guys! He is adorable! And full of spunk already smile
Leyna, thank you, I hadn't though of that! Hopefully that is the case, I just want to be prepared, and I wonder what it does look like under there. He actually looks better in those pics than when he first came oop (it was kind of sucked in a little) so your comment does give me hope smile

mlove what a precious little cutie mlove

I can see from just a few of the pictures that he has a MOUTH on him....so sweet!

I hope he's OK...if he's not, he'll learn how to cope. (Remember, he won't KNOW he has a handicap unless you TREAT him like he has one.)

Another update on my little man...I named him Rocco mlove
And his eyes are starting to open. He definitely doesn't have an eye in his right socket frown I am going to wait for him to get a little bit bigger and then take him to the vet to see if there is anything we can do for him.
Here are some new pics, taken today of him and his brother, who didn't detach until 3 days ago. smile

I had a cat with one eye. Like 1duck1goose said, the vet will probably stitch it closed.

With my cat, the vet cut the eyelid top and bottom a little bit - I know it sounds gross, but she did it so that the two eyelids will actually grow together. Then when the stitches heal or come out, the eye will stay closed. It will actually be sealed.

Your babies are adorable!

Rocco had his vet appointment today and it went very well smile
His eye is nice and clean, not irritated, no other abnormalities, just missing an eyeball. At this point there isn't anything to do, he doesn't need it stitched closed, I just have to keep an eye on it and clean it with some saline solution if it gets gunky at all and watch for any infection.

Here are some new pics of him smile

Oh he is adorable. Don't worry, he has personality and I bet since he's never had two eyes this isn't going to hinder him in any way.

Thank goodness he has you in his life Chrissy. You're wonderful and full of love.


Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming
WOOOO HOOOO, WHAT A RIDE!!!

he's a beautiful boy Chrissy smile Like Jaimee mentioned, I'm betting he won't need a modified setup because he's never had that eye, he'll automatically learn with making the adjustments right away because he's never had the eye so there won't be anything to miss..
