Contact lenses for pet cataracts

A German company is developing a new treatment for dogs and other animals with severe cataracts: contact lenses! The lenses come in different sizes to treat everything from cats to rhinos. I haven't been able find info on exactly how this solves cataracts, but the idea is sure taking off, causing a major expansion at S & V Technologies. Vets need special training to perform the procedure, so it is not widely available yet. But S & V offers training for vets around the world.

  1. what about dogs that cannot see clearly near or far away & how could you diagnose. Maybe they just use their nose to help them see!!
