Cure for cataracts without surgery in humans and dogs

I’m researching cataracts for my dog, Jack, who is blind due to cataracts. This article applies to humans and animals with cataracts. Cataracts are the clouding and deterioration of the eye lens from age-related thickening which usually occurs in older people, usually leading to blindness. Cataracts, as with any other degenerative conditions, are a result of free-radical or oxidative damage. In the case of cataracts, is an oxidation to the protein structure of the lens, a process called glycation. The damage is likened to the process of egg white protein turning opaque when it is slowly heated (the process of glycation), working from the outer ring of the lens to the center of the lens.

My dog is on insulin shots twice a day for the rest of his life to treat diabetes. He is 12 years old but still very much full of life. It’s hard to see him staring at a wall, crying for me, because he doesn’t know where he is in the house or where I am. He’s trapped in a blackened world.  I would like to share with you what I found in case you or your loved one, human, canine or feline, are going through the same thing.

Jack, 12 years old, has cataracts in both eyes, which I saw forming for the last 6 months. He was ok until the morning he wasn’t. He went blind overnight and that’s how it happens. The circles started small, but he could see fine. The vet said he would go blind within a year and he did, overnight, about 4 months after diagnosis. His cataracts are caused by diabetes and now cover most of both eyes. My 5 year old says Jack has “moon eyes.” It’s a build up of sugar in the lens from diabetes.

My vet said surgery is the only way, as all vets will. Either they don’t know about holistic medicine (he admits he does not) or they want to make a ton of money via surgery. Did you know cataracts are a 1 BILLION DOLLAR a year business? Now you do.

I can only imagine how horrifying it is for Jack, especially since he doesn’t understand why he can’t see. The vet said it will be $3,000 – $4,000 per eye! I feel bad to say I can’t afford it. There is just no way. Everywhere I read says dogs will adjust but I was determined to find an answer for a fix. I’m a believer in herbs and natural medicine. Just because they are doctors certainly doesn’t mean they know everything. Many people see doctors and attorneys and car mechanics, or any professional as all-knowing. Just because they are in the profession and we aren’t, DOESN’T mean they know everything. They do have a limit in knowledge, just as you do, in your profession. What can it hurt to research? What can it hurt to try something if the damage is already done and it won’t cause pain? That’s where I come from. I never give up until all avenues have been exhausted.

I found a few companies online selling cures such as CAN-C. I have not tried these, although tempted. After more reading I found many people talking about castor oil. It must be 100% pure castor oil, which is naturally high in antioxidants. You will clean or heal the eye from the inside out. It is said castor oil, 1 drop in each eye before bed, each day, will dissolve the cataract after a handful of weeks.



  1. You have a beautiful heart. I feel your frustration about the industry. It’s sad that if you don’t have they money you can’t help your dog. I think it’s ridiculous that a surgery like that can be that expensive. Keep reading and keep us updated. I will pray that it will help him and hopefully now you can help others as well. Keep fighting for you dog.


  2. How did the castor oil work? Our dog went blind overnight basically as well. Looking into a natural remedy.

    I’m a lawyer, and I couldn’t agree more about professionals being believed to know everything. I hope the castor oil has been working!


    1. Hi David,
      Sorry for the delay in response. It’s been about 2 months and the caster oil has done nothing. I still put a drop in each of his eyes daily, sometimes twice daily, but usually just once now. After reading all the rave reviews I really thought it would work. Some say it takes a couple weeks and some say up to 3 months. It can’t hurt to try and I would recommend it. Nothing bad can come of it and it’s cheap. Make sure you get the right castor oil of course. I need to continue my search. Maybe his cataracts are too far gone, I don’t know. Jack went blind overnight and a few days before he was having some issue seeing treats in front of his face. Before those few days he was fine. His eyes looked fine. Over the course of a week his eyes got the blue cataract over the pupils. Cataracts are excess deposits of sugar and they can’t see through them. Castor oil is potent in dissolving them but so far nothing. I can’t afford $4,000 surgery for each eye. I can’t even afford to have one of his eyes fixed. It’s a lot of money for anyone. I felt so bad but he is now navigating around the house pretty well, although he spends most of his time on the couch.


  3. Thanks for the reply. I’m going to try the castor oil because why not like you said can’t hurt, but very saddening to know they haven’t had any visible affect. It’s bullshit we don’t have affordable and decent pet health care and it’s our pets that’s suffering.


    1. Agreed. I’m no dr. but I can’t see how they justify $4,000 per eye! Is an eye an eye? Does it matter if it’s for a pet? They do take advantage of people in a weakened state. Not all are like this of course, but most are. Same with funeral homes. I could go on and on. Yes try it, it’s worth a shot. In about a month your dog will be getting around the house again pretty well believe it or not. Jack finds his way upstairs and down the hall when he really wants me. Good luck!


      1. Have you ever thought it may be good to find out why he has diabetes and use natural methods to improve this condition with alternative remedies just like the castor oil for the eyes. Perhaps the insulin is preventing the castor oil from doing it’s work and the diabetes just continues. Don’t do anything drastic, but maybe some research to find more information on this first.


      2. Yes, I am a huge supporter of herbal. I have been reading a lot but have not come across anything I feel would work. In the meantime, poor Jack was peeing uncontrollably on the couch, the floor…even while just standing there. Getting him on the meds stopped that within a few days. I didn’t know how long it would take to research and find something and didn’t want him peeing everywhere and being uncomfortable. The caster oil has done nothing.
