The Cat Who Wears Contacts

Ernest is a 15-year-old cat who lives at a shelter in Godshill on the Isle of Wight. He suffers from entropion, a condition where the eyelids roll inward and cause inflammation. Surgery might correct the condition, but veterinarians were concerned about how such an old cat would react to an anesthetic. The solution? Contact lenses!
Centre manager Paula Sadler, 56, said: 'Before Earnest was given the contact lenses he was quite squinty and had trouble seeing where he was going.

'Now his eyes have opened up and he has a new lease of life.

Does he take them out every night?

Don't mind AnUnSi; there just weren't any abortion stories to complain about this week.

I was wondering how they knew what prescription to use. Don't contacts use prescriptions like eyeglasses?
I guess even a plain 2X or 3X could be a great improvement.

BTW this story was really an AWH story. Once in a while mankind does something really nice.

Poor thing.. He spent majority of his life squinting and barely seeing at all... imagine how he feels now that he can open his eyes wide! :)
