When an older Pit Bull named Gremlin started having vision problems, things proceeded rather quickly, and before long, her environment became a lot darker than it had been before. Gremlin underwent cataract surgery, but the procedure was unsuccessful, and as a result, she lost the ability to see out of one eye and had severely impaired vision in the other. Soon after, she began bumping into walls constantly.
The Gremlin’s optical nerves were no longer able to withstand any further operation, and as a result, the blind Gremlin started having problems moving around the house. The Pit Bull started to run into walls and other things, which made her feel worse as the days went on because she kept hurting herself.
Gremlin eventually became less social and stopped socializing with her other canine siblings. She found that even the smallest sounds were sufficient to startle her. And for the most part, she passed her time by doing nothing more than sitting still in the back corner.
The owners of Gremlin couldn’t stand to see their once playful canine deteriorate before their very eyes. Because of this, they sought advice from the veterinarian once more, who suggested a potentially life-threatening lens transplant. On the other hand, given the last operation that had been unsuccessful, they decided against putting Gremlin through another procedure.
They came up with the idea to try human contact lenses out on Gremlin as a remedy. The people who owned her were merely trying to look out for her best interests, even if the plan seemed in poor taste. They placed an order for some powerful lenses for Gremlin and evaluated how well they worked.
The risk they took paid off! When Gremlin was finally able to meet her owners again, it was a touching and heartwarming occasion. And it was obvious that now that the senior dog had her sight back, she was going to be getting back to being the old version of herself.
