    Hi! We have a 4 year old Flemish Giant. For about the last year I've noticed that her eye has had a blue tint - it reminded me of cataracts or something. Within the last month or so it seems that her entire eye is becoming light blue - like she's blind. My biggest concern is that this is an injury since she lives with our chickens and this has worsened so quickly. It doesn't look injured - except for the color. Is there something I should look for? Is it common for a rabbit to go blind in one eye?

    Thanks for any help or advice.

    It could be a result of an injury or it could be a disease or other problem with the eye. It would be best to have a vet look at it.

    Thank you! Let's see if I can convince my husband of that. [​IMG]
