Blind Senior Dog Is Overwhelmed With Excitement After Getting Contact Lenses

When a senior Pit Bull named Gremlin began losing her sight, things moved pretty quickly, and soon, her world was getting very dark. Gremlin was taken in for cataract surgery, but things didn’t go well and she went blind in one eye while the other eye had very poor vision. She soon started walking into walls.

Her optical nerves couldn’t sustain any more surgery, so the blinded Gremlin began having trouble getting around the house. The Pit Bull began to bump into walls and objects – causing her to get more depressed with each passing day.

Slowly, Gremlin stopped interacting with her other doggie siblings. She began to get startled by small noises. And for the most part, she spent her time just sitting motionless in the corner.

Gremlin’s owners couldn’t bear to watch their once-playful dog wither away. That is why they again consulted the vet, who recommended a risky lens transplant. However, considering the earlier surgery that went awry, they didn’t want Gremlin to undergo another surgery.

As a solution, the decided to trey human contact lenses on Gremlin. While it seemed like a crude idea, her owners just wanted to make sure that she was safe. They ordered some high-powered lenses for Gremlin and tried them out.

Their gamble paid off! It was a heart-warming moment when Gremlin was able to see her owners again. And it was clear that with her sight back, the senior dog was going to be getting back to her old self.
