Melanosis second eye

Hi! I traveled about 2 hours to take my cat to a veterinary ophthalmologist, I do it every year because of his melanosis but it seems to really be speeding upm I took him in February this year. This is the difference between march 2022, Feb 2023 as and today. They said to bring him back next February but I'm not sure if I should actually be worried its developing so quickly and I did mention this but there's no other specialists near me? It's just the amount it's spread and the pupil being a little funny and it dosent seem to be as reactive to light as the other one, it's always slightly bigger as you can see.. I did mention that at the appointment too and she's a lovely vet so I don't want to complain if it's not something massively worrying! I absolutely adore him he is my world so I can't take any risks he's such a sweet boy ❤️ I also don't want to be over reacting, it's £250 per consultation so it would be daft to be questioning the professionals if it's just me and my anxieties! I lost my old cat last year and I do worry a lot since it happened!Screenshot_20230610-202330Screenshot_20230610-202341

Hello - vets can only give you the best of their opinion based on what they can see on the day.  If something has changed, should you go back to your vet or the specialist?  - of course you should!  Not necessarily to complain, but to highlight the increased rate of change in the eye and to ask whether their opinion might have altered in light of that.  The more information your vet has, the better decisions they can make.  A good question is - what differentials are there for this eye?  Is Melanoma looking the most likely and if so, what options are available?  Its definitely worth the conversation.
