    In Portuguese Water Dogs there are two forms of PRA as well as other eye diseases that cause blindness. 

    All owners of Portuguese Water Dogs are encouraged to have their dog’s eyes tested regularly; annually for breeding dogs, and every 2-3 years for non-breeding dogs. The non-breeding dogs are as important to the breed’s long term eye health as the breeding dogs.  If and when a genetic eye problem is found in the a non breeding animals it is important notify the breeder and club pwdca.eye.committee@gmail.com

    Routine eye exams provide the knowledge about the overall eye health of the breed, as well as provide you with an understanding of your dog’s eye health. 

    The Exam

    The OFA ECR exam is a general eye exam that screens for genetic and non‐genetic abnormalities in your dog’s eyes. 

    The eye screening exam is performed approximately 20 minutes after pupil-dilating drops are placed in your dog’s eyes. The drops are not painful, but your dog’s eyes may be light-sensitive for up to eight hours.

    The ophthalmologist will examine your dog’s eyes in a darkened room. The exam takes only a few minutes. 

    All dogs in show, performance, and pet homes, should have their eyes examined regularly. 

    Dogs with normal test results are eligible for OFA-ECR registration certificate that is valid for 12-months.
