I am 10 months old. I often rub the outside edges of my eyes with my paws, like I'm pushing the hair INTO my eyes. Mom brushes the hair aside, but I push it back. I also rub my eyes on mom, and sometimes push against her, because the pressure seems to make them feel better or something. I like it when mom gently pushes on my eyes, and rubs the sides of them, too.

I am mom's first Shih Tzu. She didn't realize we have such huge eyeballs, and worries because she's read that Shih Tzu's can develop eye problems. What can she do to help me?
