Hi Randy. Welcome to Just Answer. My name is***** Thank you for your question. Can you take a photo of what you're seeing and post it here so I can view it. A cherry eye is a prolapse of a gland associated with the gland of the 3rd eyelid. It looks like a bulge on the inner edge of the eye (towards the side of the nose). It is typically pink / reddish. They are usually very comfortable when it happens as they aren't holding the eye shut or acting off in any way. Here is a link on it.
