Question Blindness

My Mouse has been blind in one eyes for as long as i can remember however lately i found he's becoming blind in his other eye too.
Does anyone else have blind pets and know if theres any major complications with it or things i can do to make life better for him.

I've never had any blind animals, but I can suggest to just make sure he is in a cage with only one level and keep his food and water low enough where he can easily find it. I'd imagine you will especially have to make sure he is getting enough water. Perhaps you could even hand-feed him some water and food every day at breakfast and dinner, just to make sure he's getting enough to stay healthy. Also, and this is really obvious, when you get ready to handle him, make a bit of noise as you are approaching the cage--talk to him, etc.--and move your hands a bit slower around him so he doesn't get surprised and scared. Overall, I really don't think there's any reason why he can't still enjoy life every bit as much as he used to as long as you make sure he's getting what he needs, and still giving him lots of attention.
