3 year old Malti-Poo sisters in need of lasik and retinal detachment surgery. Both dogs, both eyes.They are true angels and deserve to see!!

I have sibling Malti-poos. Sam and Lily (they are both females) My young son and I adopted them at 5 and a half weeks, from a lady that had mom and dad dogs on scene. We fell in love with these two little snowballs. They are SO SWEET and wonderful!!! We both can't believe how blessed and lucky we are to have both of them.
When they were only 2 years old, I noticed the discoloration in one of their eyes. I took them to the vet, who in turn referred us to an Opthamologist Veterinarian, Eye Care for Animals. They checked both pups and said they both have Juvenille Cataracts and also that they both have the beginnings of retinal detachment, one more severe than the other. Something about triangles detaching in the their eyes. They told me to not let them shake their heads. That's tough to do since they play with each other like little polar bear cubs. Their office gave me a quote of over $4000 EACH DOG just for lasiks, that doesn't cover the fixing of the retinal detachments. I have since been looking for vetinary schools that would help out with a large discount, but no luck so far.
If these two were elderly, I would rethink putting them through all of the doctor visits and surgeries, but they are so young. They aren't even 4 years old yet. I know they will live a long time and we love them SO MUCH!!! I wouldn't want them to live another 15 years blind, in pain, or even lose an eye.
Please help. ANY amount is more than appreciated. We are grateful for any help at all!
Thank you!!
