Still need eye help

I have been trying everything to get Ricky Bobby's eye back to health but can't seem to get it right
I have been to the vet I give him eye drops twice a day and started him on some reptivite
He doesn't seem to improve much and the vet is kinda unsure himself
So once again I turn to the experts (yes you)
He keeps his eye closed except to hunt and when he seems to be exploring
Recently I have come home about 4:30 or so and found him with both eyes closed but isn't in a full sleep? Happened like 3 times in the past five days
He still rubs his eye on branches and its looking almost raw to me but that could be because of the eye shedding
I'm attaching pics of both eyes and I hope one of u have seen this and can tell me to stop panicking and how to fix it
Thanks guys!

Hi, Have you tried Cod liver oil yet?
How much d3 is in his diet?
How are his urates?
Does he do "eye maintainance" with this eye frequently?

Does your reptivite have d3?

Do you ever supplement with vit. A? I had the same problem with my first panther. Apparently Panthers are vit. A deficient sometimes and it causes eye problems. Go to a health food store and get vit.a oil capsules. Poke a hole in it and place a very very small dot on ONE feeder. Do this twice a week for two weeks, then cut back to once a month. I wish I still had the links I had provided to me about the issue. This solved my problems and I believe a few other members. I believe one was hoj.

Hope this helps
