Bobo Sees Owner Following Two Years of Blindness
It was an emotional moment as Bobo, a 12-year-old Chinese Crested, saw his owner for the first time in two years. Bobo, who lost his vision to cataracts, had his sight restored by Angell Animal Medical Center Ophthalmologist Dr. Martin Coster in 2010.
“Bobo has had a host of medical issues over the past several years, including diabetes, that postponed his cataract surgery,” said Dr. Coster. “Cataracts are quite common in older canines and there is a high success rate for sight recovery in certain candidates. Bobo should now be able to enjoy the sights as he goes for his walks and see the people that have been around him for the past few years.”
