Brady’s symptoms are common signs of cataracts, a leading cause of vision impairment in animals. An opacity or cloudiness that develops within the lens of the eye, cataracts result in cloudy or blurred vision, and up to complete loss of vision. The only true form of treatment is to remove the cataract with surgery, which carries a high success rate. Greater than 90 percent of cases result in improved vision.
Following a comprehensive exam and a consultation at our practice, we determined that Brady was a good candidate for this procedure. Since his surgery in November, Brady has made a full recovery.
“He is living his best life!” said Donna, who noted her pet is again playful, confident, climbing the stairs, hopping up on the couch, and has resumed his “squirrel patrol” duties in the backyard. “Thank you to Dr. Brookshire and her staff for giving our Brady his quality of life back. It gives us peace of mind knowing he is able to safely navigate his world. He’s seeing 20/20 in 2020!”
