Orchid was turned into the city pound by her owner with a severe case of genetic glaucoma. Because the glaucoma was so advanced and was not treated, the eye had swollen to many times the normal size and Orchid was blind in that eye. But RCR knew that her life was far from over.
Orchid underwent a procedure to shrink the eye to normal size. She will need to be monitored for glaucoma in the other eye for the rest of her life, but with RCR’s help, that life ahead will be long and bright.
