One thought on “How do I know if my pet has a cataract?”
You will need a veterinarian or veterinary ophthalmologist to examine your pet’s eyes, using tools which include an ophthalmoscope and/or a slit lamp microscope to make a final diagnosis. You may suspect a cataract if your pet’s eye looks cloudy or if you feel their vision is deteriorating. The surgeon will need to assess your pet’s suitability and ensure it has no other conditions of the eye which include glaucoma or retinal disease, which will complicate the outcome of the surgery. Cataract surgery is an option with dogs but is rarely performed in cats. There are many alternative causes of cataracts.
