Cataracts are a partial or total opacity of the lens of the eye. They are most often seen in middle-aged to older dogs, but there are also juvenile cataracts which appear in dogs under 5 years. Most common in poodles, cockers and Boston terriers, juvenile cataracts are believed to be hereditary. Animals with this condition should not be used for breeding.
There is no medical treatment for cataracts except removal of the lens so that the animal may perceive light. Veterinary medicine has perfected the technique of cataract removal so that many dogs blind with cataracts are given additional years of sight. The eyesight is not perfect the dog cannot focus but at least he can discern shadows and objects in his path.
