Hi all. My 12 year old parakeet Wonder Peep has developed a cataract a few months ago but in the last week he has been closing that eye more and more often. I tried some homeopathic remedies like making my own saline solution for eye drops but it's not helping much. I'll also note he is acting normal. Eating well and chirping. Not puffed up or sleeping with his head behind his back and no panting or tail bobbing. Is this normal for a bird with a cataract or should I risk stressing him out and take him to the vet?

Feeling inconstant would drive me insane, Flesh, to blood, to bone my love, twisted...Is It Real?
