Smile that's a shame, but not catastrophic. Hang on, & see what the Opth says.



sorry to hear the Dx, @Aliboo.

however, don't lose hope - juvie cataracts are usually treatable, especially if caught quickly, & even if one eye is seriously affected, dogs can function well.

Cats are more visual than either dogs or humans; there are good scent workarounds for cueing a dog to their location in the house.
The biggest change is not letting a dog with limited vision run loose, outside a fence, & preferably when inside a fence, on familiar ground.

Dogs with poor vision can inadvertently get into trouble with other dogs, by not seeing visual signals - some cope very well, some struggle & become anxious / twitchy around "new" dogs.
If he has some well-known k9 buddies, they can really help his confidence & keep him happily engaged.
