    How Well Can Labradors See, in General?

    My labrador seems to have pretty bad eyesight. For example, he knows the command "find your toy!" but sometimes he'll walk right past it while looking for it.
    I was wondering if this is usual for this breed?

    Any answers are very much appreciated.

    You should have his eyes checked. Eyesight is the same in all breeds, generally speaking. Differences only occur due to disease in individual dogs. Eye disease can be genetic and inherited, and some breeds are prone to inherited eye disease, but dogs rely on their sense of smell far more than their sense of sight. Also, dogs only see in a limited color range.
