Has anyone had a pet go through cataract surgery?
If so, I would like to hear about your direct experiences.

Your pet and Cataract Surgery
Animal Eye Care
I've never had a pet with cataracts, but I had them years ago.
Anyway, I imagine that keeping the animal somewhat quiet would be the norm. My doc was adamant that I not do any lifting or straining for days. I also had to wear an eyeguard for several nights.
Implants are the norm for humans. I saw a show that had a horse getting implants or contact lenses after the surgery. Implants also protect the retina from UV radiation, although my doc was adamant that I wear the blue blockers forever. Which I haven't. I do have sunglasses, though.
Read the literature and ask questions about the implants. These are important for close-up vision but will not be 100%.
