My 12-year-old cat has retinal atrophy. My vet says she is completely blind, but a retinopathologist told me she responds to bright light. I believe she sees more than bright light. When I move my finger in front of her face, she moves her head to follow my finger. I don’t do this with a bright light behind my hand, but indoors with no lamps on. The room is not dark, but the light is not strong enough to read by.
I can tell her eyesight has deteriorated, because she moves more slowly and cautiously now; but I am sure she is not blind. What can you tell me about retinal atrophy in cats? Will her sight remain as it is now, or will it deteriorate further as she grows older?
