You might want to have your vet give you a referral to an ophthalmic vet. It will not be inexpensive but it is important to find the cause of your dog's distress. A specialist is likely to find the cause and can come up with a treatment plan. I had to go this route with Clover. She crashed at top speed and luxsated both lenses. She spent the rest of her life on eye ($$$$) meds and was routenly monitored. She was comfortable and would bark at squirrels with the other dogs even though she couldn't see them! Hope this helps and good luck.

I'm sorry to hear about your dog's troubles. It's good you've had everything checked.
My old dog developed cataracts in both eyes, and while it took some time to adjust, she managed quite well.
Wishing you and yours the best!
Kaizen, Japanese for "continuous improvement" or "change for the better," refers to philosophy or practices that focus upon continuous improvement of processes. Kaizen is a daily process of making changes and monitoring results, then adjusting as needed.
Deb I don't have a solution. I just wanted to say and offer my support. I am president of the local dog club. We have a 4 month old with cataracts who will be starting class this week. She is almost totally blind and will be soon. If I learn anything from her owners I will let you know. Good luck. Wliberty
