Yorkie's Eyes are Starting to get Cloudy

This year our little Trixie  will be 12 years old!

Health wise, she's in good health  overall. 
Her teeth are problematic - common with yorkies.

Last year  I noticed her eyes seem to be getting a little cloudy.
My previous Yorkie had expensive  cataract surgery - which really  did not help her sight at all. 
I would not do that again. 

American Kennel Club says, "As with people, when dogs have cloudy eyes it may be a natural part of the aging process. Other times, cloudy eyes could be a symptom of a number of eye problems. Trying to distinguish between what is normal and what is a problem can be tricky. While your veterinarian is your best source of information about your dog's eye health, it does help to know what types of eye problems can cause a cloudy appearance in your dog's eyes, and any other symptoms you can look out for."  read more here
