    there is a surgery that can be done but she could still go blind due to the diabetic problem or because of her age it could come back in 2 or 3 years. does anyone have any thing like this with their dog and what did you do or would you do the surgery

    Katie is blind due to cataracts in both eyes. My vet says the surgery to remove the cataracts is very expensive and isn’t usually
    successful. A lot of times the dog will develop glaucoma after the surgery and end up having the eye removed. He strongly advises
    against the surgery.
