Can A Macaw Parrot Get Cataracts?

Can you do anything for this?

 

I have a Catalina macaw she is 30.

 

Her right eye seems to be not as clear as her left. It’s like a very lite graying.

 

Sometimes she bumps into things.

 

Her diet consists of seeds and pellets she also gets prime vitamins in her water

 

Also a little treat from our dinner plates at night.

Thanks

Steven
