How Much Does Cataract Surgery for Dogs Cost?

When a dog’s lens of its eye “clouds” in a white to blue color, it may be time for cataract surgery.  Just like in a human, this surgery will replace the damaged lens with an intraocular lens implant, also known as IOL.

The cataract is the opacity of the lens that prevents the light from reaching the retina, and these cataracts can develop for a variety of reasons.  Cataracts can be caused by a disease, old age, genetics or even trauma to the eye.  They may be present at birth or as they develop, usually between one to three years old. notes that cataracts are often associated with diabetes.
