Pet Insurance Claim of the Week: Cataracts

Stella the 1-year-old Newfoundland dog recently made a trip to the veterinary clinic for cataracts in both eyes. This is a condition in which the lens of the eye becomes opaque, causing blurred vision or even complete blindness. Because Stella is so young, it is likely that her condition was genetically predisposed.

Stella received lens implant surgery at an eye specialist veterinary clinic. With a bit of rest and medication, Stella will fully recover and enjoy many years to come!

One Response to Pet Insurance Claim of the Week: Cataracts

  1. Valery Oquin says:

    A cataract is a clouding of the lens inside the eye which leads to a decrease in vision. It is the most common cause of blindness and is conventionally treated with surgery. Visual loss occurs because opacification of the lens obstructs light from passing and being focused on to the retina at the back of the eye.^’^,
