Besides the fact that a dog wearing goggles is adorable, dog eye protection is “either to protect the eyes from injuries or to protect the eyes from the sun. 

Blind dogs and dogs exposed to harsh conditions—like working dogs—may also be good candidates. Great for dogs who ride in the side car!

Putting a pair of goggles on your pet may seem like just a fashion statement, and they do look cool. However, a good pair of goggles can also protect your pet's eyes from damaging UV rays, debris and other eye problems. They can even be beneficial for dogs that suffer from eye injuries or certain eye conditions.

The most important thing is for the eye problem to be identified and examined by a veterinarian as soon as possible. This is because some conditions in dogs can be severe enough that they can result in blindness, or the physical loss of an eye.
