As dogs age, many develop cataracts in one or both eyes. A cataract is an opaque spot on the lens of the eye, which makes it difficult for a dog or cat to see through. They often occur in dogs or cats with diabetes, and are found in older pets that have immune disorders, a chronic disease, chronic skin problems, hip dysplasia and ear problems. Cataracts can also occur in young pets as a result of genetics or an injury to the eye.
