Can A Telescope Pop An Eye?

Recommended Posts

I bought a little Calico Telescope right before Christmas. I did not notice anything strange about her eyes when I bought her, which means they were both the same size. I think I bought her the 24th.

On the 26th or 27th I noticed that one of her eyes was waaaaay bigger than the other. The right eye was almost non telecopic looking. I thought maybe she had banged her left eye, causing it to swell. I could not remember how big her eyes were to begin with.

So I've been waiting for the swelling to go down with no luck......her eyes are still teh same, one huge and one tiny. I *thought* the tiny one was starting to look bigger, but I have a wild imagination so who knows.

But then just a few minutes ago, I found a picture, which is dated the 24th, it's blurry, I think I actually posted it on the picture forum when I got her, anyway her eyes were both the same size, the BIG size. What happened to make an eye smaller. I thought only bubble eyes *popped*.

She looks ok and has been swimming and eating and pooping fine, so I have not done anything for her eye, other than keep an eye on the water parameters.

Any idea's on what happened. (Why an eye shrunk?) I mean the injury was obviously from trauma, but wouldn't the usual be for an eye to swell, not get smaller? It's not he actual *eye* it's the telescope part.

Thank you for your reply. I'm just treating it with good water quality.

But why would it "shrink"?
