Cataract surgery

Sophie had hereditary juvenile cataracts. Her owners elected cataract surgery to restore her vision. These pictures show Sophie before and after her cataract is removed. Today, Sophie is visual and enjoys playing with her Mom and Dad.
 
Ocular Acupuncture
Ezzy has a painful condition called "Dry Eye" in which she does not produce enough tears to lubricate her eyes. It can lead to excessive discharge from the eyes, corneal ulcers, and infections. Acupuncture relieves pain, decreases the inflammation and discharge, and can help stimulate tear production.
 
Enucleation
Penny had glaucoma in her left eye. Because Penny could no longer see out of this eye, and because it was painful for her, the eye was removed. Penny recovered quickly and is doing just fine.

Little Suzy Q was painful in both eyes and had gone blind.  Eventually she had to have both eyes removed.  She is now a very happy, pain free little girl, and she looks great!
