I have observed this disease in Persian cats only. It may be that the pushed up nose anatomy with frequent rubbing of nasal folds of hair on the cornea can predispose to this condition. It is a degenerative disease of the superficial upper layers of the cornea (the outside clear part of the eye) in either eye or both.
The cat is presented with dark brown or black corneal plaques. It may start as a pin- point dark lesion with tearing down the face but later progresses to a wider corneal lesion with moderate to severe discomfort. The cornea may stain with a fluorescein dye around but not over the pigmented plaque. I have seen many of these cases also exhibit skin dermatitis problems that range from quiet scaling of skin with moderate itching to severe bleeding areas of the body where the cat has self traumatized the skin with constant licking (cats unlike dogs have cornified tiny papillae on their tongues that can abraid tissues from constant licking) and pulling out of the fur from tail and torso.
There is a high correlation of corneal sequestration with Feline Herpes Viral Infection.
Please see photo below of “Sammy” Castille, neutered male Persian, before my successful treatment of both his dermatitis and bilateral corneal sequestration:
Orthodox treatment consists of excision surgery of the lesion and the resulting ulcer is treated as an uncomplicated ulcer unless circumstances indicate more vigorous treatment. Treatment is aimed at prevention of adhesions to the inner structures of the eye with resultant glaucoma as a serious complication. Disadvantages of orthodox treatment:
MY HOLISTIC MEDICAL APPROACH
EAV has taught me there is 50% of medical therapy and diagnosis being ignored by the orthodoxy. We are also Energy Beings. All life has an Electromagnetic Energy Force (EMF) circulation that maintains Life. When that energy is blocked or disturbed, illness and pain ensues. You have to treat both the physical and the EMF if you hope to cure an animal /person of their illness.
The cornea is energetically linked to the liver and digestion. Because so many animals are being fed commercial diets that are not formulated for a carnivore, especially cats, who are a true carnivore and require a high % of flesh protein to be healthy. Commercial diets are 50-75 % cereal based with questionable source and quality of protein.
This puts a great strain on the pancreas, which has to digest this large volume of carbohydrates and starves the cells of the body for the needed protein. Commercial diets are also contaminated with toxic chemicals: noxious food preservatives, petroleum analine dyes, sugars, pesticides and from my 28 years research, heavy metals. The Pancreas is energetically linked to the Immune System. What weakens the pancreas, weakens the immune system.
The Liver is over burdened by kitty having to detox and eliminate this load of toxic chemicals day after day. The liver is also assaulted by vaccines and drugs administered. The Liver energy meridian has a destructive energy to the immune system. See where I’m going? When the liver is in a state of inflammation, it is imbalanced and overloads the energy of degeneration to the immune system The immune system quits, so that every bacteria, virus, or fungus that the cat is exposed to, can find a welcome mat out in this weakened body. This is how the Herpes Virus takes root, the cornea is already weakened by diet, and the chronic irritation of nasal hairs rubbing on it, makes it succumb to Corneal Sequestration development.

Hello Dr. Dodd,
Here are before and after eye photos (of my cat, Cindy) before and after your treatment. The picture was taken on Jan 29, 2006.
By the time I first contacted you, her eye was much worse than what you see in that photo. A week or so after that photo was taken, her entire iris was covered with a dark cap. The white of her eye was an angry red, and she had a section (about the size of a pin head) that was ready to erupt.
The vet told me her eyeball was going to burst, and he instructed me to rush her to surgery so they could remove her eye. I took a lot of heat for not following that protocol. As you can see, it isn't quite 100%, but it sure is close, and she is now back to being a very happy cat.
Thank you for making that possible.
Before my treatment of Cindy’s left eye showing corneal sequestration, acute inflammatory conjunctivitis and acute uveitis.
Post treatment photo of same cat, Cindy 4 months later.
