Still have it. Yes its frozen. I havent had time. Just googled right now about it. What i found is that there are a lot of changes that occur that damage or obstruct viewing but it isnt a total fail. The tests were done on dogs but described as a nuisance but didnt prevent diagnosis.
But this is done with a special procedure that i dont think i am qualified to perform. LOL
It sounds like it should be immediately obvious via scope if the damage from freezing was too much. I really hope not but we will see. I will try to do it today.
