This is the Winston Chang Entropion Eye Surgery Fund. The funds will be used for Winston's medical costs and related expenses.

Winston, is an English Bulldog and Shar Pei mix that has been living with a painful eye condition known as entropion. He came to me at 3 years of age (about a year ago) after living life as a stray with this problem in both of his eyes. The condition is usually present by six months of age. Entropion can also occur secondary to pain in the eye, scarring of the eyelid, or nerve damage. Winston has unfortunately already sustained permanent damage to both of his eyes, with visible scarring. With entropion, the upper or lower eyelid can be involved, and in Winston's case both of his lower eye lids have this problem. When entropion occurs in both eyes, this is known as "bilateral entropion." His 3rd eyelid is swollen, red and visible at all times. Upper lid entropion involves the eyelashes rubbing on the eye, but the lower lid usually has no eyelashes, so little or no hair rubs on the eye. Surgical correction is used in more severe cases, like Winston's. A strip of skin and orbicularis oculi muscle are removed parallel to the affected portion of the lid and then the skin is sutured. Shar Peis, who often are affected as young as two or three weeks old, respond well to temporary eyelid tacking. The entropion is often corrected after three to four weeks, and the sutures are removed. This is a fundraiser to help pay for Winston's Entropion eye surgery.
