Nearly Blind Pit Bull Gets the Coolest Gift Ever From Her Adopted Family

Let’s just say that she now sees the light. And her reflection.

We all can’t imagine what it’s like to be, well, blind as a bat. For those who are near-sighted or far-sighted, though, getting your first pair of glasses or contacts — or, better yet, Lasik! — is the equivalent of finding the Fountain of Youth. How would this translate to a dog, namely a nearly blind pit bull by the name of Gremlin? Just watch this video and share this article:

What you just saw is Gremlin getting a contact lens placed into her left eye! You guessed it: apparently animals can get prescribed contact lenses and have been for the past 10 years. But what’s even more shocking is that one veterinarian has been prescribing “canine” contact lenses for the past 25 years!

They’re relatively uncommon, but the tech has been around for quite a while.

But just why did Gremlin need a contact lens in her left eye?
