Blind Quiet Eye In Dogs

Blind quiet eye occurs when a dog loses the ability to see from one or both eyes without any signs of inflammation involving the tissues of the eyes. Affected dogs tend to bump into things and have trouble seeing in the low light conditions. They may be reluctant to move around and have perception problems when it comes to depth. 

  • There are many potential causes of blind quiet eye in dogs. These include:
  • Optic nerve problems
  • Lens defect that leads to loss of the ability to focus
  • Lens luxation
  • Progressive retinal atrophy (PRA)
  • Detachment of the retina
  • Sudden acquired retinal degeneration (SARDS)
  • Cataracts
  • Problems in the sight-processing part of the brain

If your dog appears to have trouble seeing, make an appointment with your vet Ellicott City, MD sooner rather than later before possible complications can set in. Some of these causes can be corrected especially when spotted earlier. Visit this website for more information.
