If your vet said that was the only option, then that is it sadly. An aging dog with cataracts can do fine as long as everyone around him/her remembers that the dog can't see as well anymore.

This happened to my aunts dog when he was about 11. He had diabeties, and they think he got them from the insalin. One thing that you have to be careful about is not move the furnature they can ussally find themself around the house if nothing is moved. Scotty was able to run up and down the stairs and jump on his part of the sofa. My aunt did move the furnature and she would walk him around the house with a leash.
