Default Sigh, eyes- possible retinal detatchment

Smudge's right eye started to go a little cloudy 3 days ago. Got into the vet today. They rule out glaucoma, and uveitis. Intra-occular pressure is okay.

But.. they aren't sure what is wrong. His eye is cloudy like a cataract, but the fluid is billowy and it is not a cataract.. They think it might be lens luxation, or retinal detachment.

I have steroidal drops for him. I have a course of antibiotics to start tomorrow in case. The vet is posting photos on a vet share board. She expects to have an answer from an ophthalmologist in about 24 hours.

She hopes that the steroids will at least make it easier to see something in his eye, and that an ophthalmologist will have a clearer opinion.

He can't see clearly out of the eye. If he has a retinal detachment.. unlike a human it isn't fixable... and I'm upset and worried.

But I've vetted him and now I have to wait. Anyone have experience with canine retinal detachment, lens luxation and other horrible canine eye issues?
