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 still dosing. They say it can take awhile, a few months at least. 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.


  4. HI Steve, I was encouraged when I read your blog and ordered the castor oil right away before reading the comments. Like you said it’s cheap and worth a shot, my pug is in the exact same situation, ahe can’t even see her food in front of her when I put it down, and her eyes look exactly as you described. I took her outside for a walk yesterday, it’s like she’s frozen, doesn’t want to walk at all, must be because she can’t see in front of her.
    I’m curious when you mention the uncontrollable peeing, because she does that also. She has diabetes, and is on meds for seizures, gets twice daily insulin injections. I might as well buy stock in the puppy pad companies, I am going through probably 50+ per week. And spend most of my free time mopping the floor and doing laundry. Did you find some meds to help with that? That would be amazing.


    1. Hi Marlene, so sorry to hear about this. It’s terrible for you and your dog. Along with diabetes, Jack has cushings disease. He got hit with cushings first and is on meds for it, which are expensive. 6 months later he went blind from the diabetes. With his sight, in the course of a week he went from seeing to not seeing in front of him, to being blind. OVERNIGHT. that’s how it works. I have included a link to cushings disease below, which includes a lot of uncontrollable urination and over drinking. I also included a link where I get the meds online from a pharmacy that is MUCH CHEAPER. The cushings meds from a vet are around $120 a month roughly. I’m getting them for $30 a month. No more peeing. No more issues.


      This site is legit, a pet pharmacy online. You need a prescription from your vet for it. It’s called Trilostane


  5. Hi Steve, I’m with you….A true believer in natural remedies,, Drugs and Doctors are great in a life or death situations other than that they are still ” Practicing” while making a killing. Anyway, I have a 13 y. old Catahoula Leopard that in the past few months started developing cloudy and blueish eyes and also I noticed that he started bumping in to things..Vet told me that it was cataracts and nothing could be done but surgery…I like you started researching and found pretty much the same info you found but one got my attention and I gave it a try.. All sicknesses and diseases starts from poor diet , water quality, meds , vaccines etc. Based on much research on cataracts, I changed my dogs diet, started feeding him ” Blue Senior dog ” Rich in antioxidants Grain free, all natural treats with antioxidants blend as well with wild blue berries , cranberries pomegranate from NUTRO Ultra..Get it at petsmart. In his water bowl I’ve been adding about 10 drops of dandelion root extract…Supports the liver, good digestion, healthy heart and “normal blood sugar” Cancer etc Look in to it for more of it’s benefit. you could get it at amazon..some will cost up to $39. but look around and you’ll find it for $7.
    Also giving him Primalix CATARACTIN for Cataracts in Dogs I get it at Read about it there, you’ll also find other great stuff for all kinds of health problems.
    I’ve been making green tea , putting in the fridge than mixing with his water.. little more each day to allow some getting used to it.

    I started doing this for 10 days now and I noticed his energy level has gone way up, Also it seams as he’s been seeing better , haven’t been bumping into things and when I do hand signals from close to his face now he’s responding..and he wasn’t anymore. his eyes are still cloudy but shows;s only been 10 days though. Meantime i’m still researching..that’s how I came across your blog.

    Good Luck to you


    1. Thank you I will get the dandelion root extract to put in the water. Will have to check if Cataractin is better than just Castor oil on it’s own. I was wondering about the green tea though, isn’t it too much of a stimulant?


    1. Hi, I did see an improvement with the castor oil but it was not a complete miracle fix. The main reason for this, from what I have read, is that I started too late, about 6 months too late. From what I have read, if I would have started once I got the news that he may go blind, or even the week he did, it would have been better. I still continue to dose. He is doing really well. He went from staring at the walls to going up the stairs and making it from the back of the yard to the back door where he waits to come in. So yes, for Jack, it’s better but not 100%. good luck.
