Pixi went blind from glaucoma and underwent intrascleral prosthetic (ISP) surgery to return her to comfort. Owner is very pleased with the outcome of pain-free eyes, and sent us this fabulous photo of the two of them. Pixi’s owner says: “Here is how she looks! As Dr. Mughannam said to me once, “Can blind dogs live happy lives?, YES!!” Glaucoma is such a difficult disease – but you CAN get through it!”
Australian Shepherd Sparkle re-gained her beautiful “sparkling” blue eyes and vision through successful cataract surgery performed by Dr. Mughannam.
“When Kitsu was under four years old, Dr. Lynch diagnosed a juvenile cataract. What might have been traumatic for him and us turned out to be a remarkably smooth process. We knew what to expect, and the staff were incredibly capable and compassionate during his recuperation. So much so that when he developed a cataract in the other eye, we knew he would be fine after Veterinary Vision took matters in hand! Today, he alerts me to distant dogs and tiny ants- indications that his vision is excellent both near and far.”
Buster developed diabetes at 12 years of age, followed soon after by diabetic cataracts. Surgery was performed to remove the cataracts and implant replacement lenses. Happy agility dog Buster is seen here demonstrating his excellent vision!
Sasha did not like the collar. Now that she can see again, she is very friendly, flirts with everyone, smiles, and prances again. After all she is THE PRINCESS!
The day after the collar came off Mystic was like a new dog! He was more energetic, less hesitant about going downstairs, and much more friendly with other dogs in the park. Mystic gained a little bit of weight due to all the treats he got when he took his eye medications, but it was worth it.
“Prior to cataract surgery, Mulligan had a loss of confidence and was frustrated. His quality of life has definitely improved doublefold. His favorite activity was playing ball and prior to surgery he had a few injuries due to sight loss. He is now able to play ball and we no longer worry about injuries!”
Henry is a 17 year old Iguana — a very impressive age by Iguana standards! Before surgery Henry wasn’t moving around much. Now he goes all over the place exploring and turns his head to see who’s coming into the room. He also surprised us by deliberately waddling into the swimming pool. He seemed to enjoy swimming as he did it twice! Getting eyedrops into an Iguana is not for the faint of heart but I would recommend the surgery.
Hercules has bounced back to the happy playful dog he was before his vision loss. I would recommend this procedure for any dog, no matter what age. Having Hercules back to the way he was has enhanced all of our lives.
