Regretfully, cherry eye doesn't respond to any conservative therapy. The dexamethasone in the Neopolydex has reduced the inflammation a bit in the third eyelid gland but that isn't curative. Cherry eye is a surgical problem. The gland needs to be surgically repositioned in its proper position behind the third eyelid. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
