Waste of money to go see a regular vet for a suspected eye issue. You don't need a referral to see an ophthalmologist/CERF doc.
CERF clinics (often hosted by breed clubs that allow non breed and mixes) are the cheapest.

There is a CERF clinic listed ^^^^ for every 3rd Thursdays in Wheeling, hopefully that is close to you.

If you get an appointment, you have to arrive at least 1/2 hr early. They have to put drops in the dog's eyes to dilate, which takes a min of 15 minutes. I would also recommend that you take a blanket to cover his crate for after the exam. Sunlight should be avoided for a few hours until the eyes go back to normal after the dilation. I also avoid having my dogs outside or near windows while we wait for the dilation before the exam.

Good luck
