Roc's eye looks much better this morning. It is half open and not red any more. I put more drops on.

That's great news. The eyelashes turning in are common in rex hamsters due to the curl in the hairs but less common in normal coats.
Hope they new drops keep it under control but it sounds as if the steroid is reducing the inflammation. Is it Maxitrol drops? We had those for a rex we had once who suffered with this.

Thanks, yes I'm hoping it keeps getting better. The eye was closed again last night.

The drops are dexamethasone.

I just checked and it is Maxitrol drops right enough. The hamster is about ready to sell me.
