Progressive Retinal Atrophy
The retina is like the film in a camera. It receives an outside image and sends a picture to the brain. When the retina becomes weak and degenerated, the brain cannot receive the image and the animal becomes blind. The pupil then remains dilated and will not respond to light. This may be an inherited condition and unfortunately there is no known treatment or cure.
