Default Lanomax-does it really work?

I know that a number of you, including myself, have had issues with your best friend going blind from diabetes. I would like to hear from those who have used Lanomax. Does it work? and to what extent. How long have you used it? I am struggling with the decision of cataract surgery (runs $1800-3700 in SC) . I am concerned that if my 9 yr old is well enough, strong enough and could take the stress. He is not totally blind but close to it. I feel so sad for him and others in this position. Thank you

I’m really curious about this too. My Lucy has cataracts but they’re not bad (yet) and haven’t seemed to impact her vision. The VO said the cataract is a little thicker in one eye, but she can’t predict whether they’ll get worse or when but she did say it’s too early to even consider surgery.
We are using flurbiprofin drops to try to prevent glaucoma, but they’re being discontinued and are almost impossible to find now. Does anyone else use these and has your dr recommended a replacement yet?

Ollie is going to the vet Friday for cataract evaluation and ACTH stim-he also has Cushings.
I gave him an eye supplement when he was dx with Diabetes in January. No cataracts for 6 months and then just appeared overnight. I would like to use the least invasive tx but do these drops actually dissolve cataracts as some of the claims suggest??

Just my opinion, I have no experience with drops, but for something to actually dissolve cataracts sounds like a medical miracle. Has science developed something like that?
I'm sure if so, then there'd be a human version, and my opthamologist has never ever mentioned anything for me to use. I'm diabetic with developing cataracts.

Medical "claims" can be very deceptive, and based on very little proof.

Unless someone on here has had success as they claim, I'd be skeptical.

This has been widely discussed on the forum over the years . The problem with cataracts is the lens is damaged and i dont see how anything can change that
Its like scratching your glasses . Now maybe some of these items can slow the process . Maybe flushing them and moistening . I had a theory diabetes dries out the eye which could contribute to the damage

If there was miracle cure you would think everyone would use it and cataract surgery would not be needed . Now if it does not do any harm it cant hurt to try and maybe it could help but i dont think there is anything that can reverse them
