I'm no expert either but will share my experience with having had a dog with eye problems. We had an English Bulldog pup who developed juvenile cataracts before the age of 1. We authorized surgery but she failed the final test just prior to the operation. For the remainder of her short life she required daily drops and ointments. It was not a good situation but we loved her and did the best we could for her. She grew increasingly frustrated around children and would rush up to them because she couldn't see them, which in turn scared the kids. She passed at 3 years of other problems common in the breed.
In fact, after 30 years of owning EB, I was sooo very careful to research for a breed that had fewer health issues. English Bulldogs are money pits. Actually, any dog with a chronic health issue is a money pit because once they are yours, you are committed if you are a responsible dog owner. There are some wonderful breeders on here who care deeply about maintaining clean lines. That's who I'd be talking to if it were me. Best of luck to you and welcome!
