Dogs and Sunglasses

Does anyone have a dog with cattaracks. My Chloe has them in both eyes and I notice that when we go out her eyes water, turn red and she squints a lot.  It was mentioned to me that I should possibly get her sunglasses for dogs that have cattaracks. Has anyone ever heard of this and if so has anyone tried this before.

Chloe is 14, possibly too old for surgery and her sight is almost gone, plus she can't hear very well unless you're in front of her and you get her attention.  I've been using sign language more or less for some time now.

Ya i do agree 14 years is good age i dont know how far she will withstand heavy medication. if you are very particular about taking her out then try sun glasses as you said that will be helpful or try to just play with her within the house area. hope you would have consulted the vet what was his opinion.

Age is a big factor and since her eyes do bother her during daylight walks I just might try the glasses. I don't know if she will wear them, but I guess it can't hurt. Right now most of our walks take place when the sun goes down, but I'm beginning to feel like a vampire with a little vampire at my side, but at the same time I don't want to look like a fool walking down the street with a dog wearing sunglasses.
