Video: Visually Impaired Dog Gets Contacts

Can contact lenses actually help visually impaired dogs?

In Gremlin the Pit Bull’s case, yes they can! Cataracts made her vision nearly impossible, so would keep running into furniture all over the house. She became depressed and just moped around.

Then her owners tried getting her contacts; and they worked! Now she’s back to running through doorways and playing like her younger self.

Meet the Author: Thomas Mulcahy

Thomas can't remember a time when his household didn't have a four-legged member of the family. When our Giant Schnauzer isn't digging around for rodents to play with, she's patiently waiting for food to drop to the floor or barking at the mailman. Thomas now swears by Schnauzers as being the best breed ever—they don't shed and they're the smartest and most entertaining dogs he's ever met. Plus the Giants make great wrestling partners.
