Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
Since there is no drainage, this is probably not caused by an infection or other opthamology issues common in older dogs. Most likely, this behavior is due to a photosensitivity that is neurologic in nature. This could be from a primary brain issue or liver disease which both cause neurologic signs. This has nothing to do with his other issues although the mega espophagus can be neurologic as well indicating that your sweet Little Man will require a Veterinary Neurologist to examine his eyes to determine the cause and treatment. Your vet can refer you to one in your area or go to the state veterinary association and they will tell you where to find one.
It will not hurt to continue the Tobrex drops until Little Man can be examined since this is an antibiotic to guard against infection.Does that make sense to you?
