Cataracts in Dogs

Overview


Cataracts are an opacity in the lens of a dog’s eye, causing him to have blurry vision.

If the cataract is small, it won’t likely disturb the dog’s vision too much, but cataracts must be monitored because the thicker and denser they become, the more likely it is they will lead to blindness.

Cataracts can develop from disease, old age and trauma to the eye, but inherited conditions are the most common cause.


Treatment


Vision loss due to cataracts can often be restored through surgery.

Cost of Treatment: $2,000 to $3,000 per eye
