I think the AKC should clarify this. It is indeed, silly, if they allow these procedures (cherry eye is on the list) saying that it is strictly for the health of the dog, and then proceed to rule out the current medically accepted procedure. Our vet, who is really a great doctor, will positively not remove the gland since it is necessary to tear production. If you research the 'fix' for cherry eye, I think you'd find this to be true. So, if there is something about this procedure that changes the picture, it should be explained or cherry eye should be a disqualifier.
