Dog can finally see owner after surgery

Surgery helps restore a rescue dog's vision.

Dogs can get cataracts too. Most of the time dogs don't have surgery to fix them -- because it's too late and it doesn't always work.

One owner took the chance and now her dog can finally see. Aurora and her owner were re-united this morning.
The 2 1/2-year-old rescue was born with cataracts.

A vet ophtalmologist at BluePearl was able to remove them.

Her owner raised the money to pay for the surgery.

It's not cheap. It costs about $4,500 dollars to fix both eyes.

Here's the biggest thing -- the younger a dog gets surgery, the more likely it is that it'll be successful.

Cataracts can turn into glaucoma and cause blindness.

If you notice that your dog's eyes are cloudy -- get a vet to check them.
