Exclamation Anyone ever used EquiVision?

Hi yall! I am new here. I just thought I would ask to see if anyone has ever used EquiVision to try and correct catracts? I just got a BEAUTIFUL registered Buckskin (tri-color actually) paint stud. He has a blue cloud in his left eye and I found EquiVision on Jeffers. I was just wondering if anyone had tried it?

Thanks!
Megan

EquiVision and cataract

Have you had the vet out to check his eye? Do you know for sure if it is a cataract? I read up on the EquiVision and it basically says it is an eye lubricant.
I would put nothing in the eye until I had a vet check to make sure there is no actual "tear"in the cornea. If you put drops in and there is a tear or rip in the cornea, you can do more damage.
My Paint has a blue spot in his one eye, it is not a cataract, just a blue spot in the eye color.

I'm with WYgma, there are a lot of things it could be and I would never, EVER put anything in a horse's eye that was not expressly prescribed by a veterinarian.

I can't speak to the efficacy of the product but at a recent lecture we had from an equine ophthalmologist, we were told there is not much you can do for cataracts. Since this is a common health concern in horses, if there were a product out there that worked well, I'm sure a board certified ophtho. Would know about it, but again, I have not tried it myself.

I pretty much saved him from being put down. He is a JoeChief Bars grandson and Dan L Straw grandson. Only 9 years old!! 15.3 Hands thick too. My vet is coming out day after tomorrow to look at him. It seems to me he may have some vision in his left eye but not much. It doesn't bother me if I can't get it corrected, he is very easy to handle. I wanted to check into the EquiVision but it's expensive! $171 for 3 little tubes of eye gel. Thanks for yall's advice. I was going to consult my vet before I done anything to his eye.

My guy has a cataract (and I have them in both eyes too, very small and don't really affect me that much) and he does amazing. He is a little more spooky on his left, the side with the cataract, but I am just really careful to let him know where I am and ride a little defensively and he does great. Congrats on your new guy, I hope everything checks out great with the vet tomorrow!
