I hear collie's have terrible eye problems, i do not think you can identify them though, they just become blind i think, i would try looking them up on the internet!

A Collie book can answer your questions. And the eye problems can be tested for at 6 weeks of age.

CEA (Collie Eye Anomaly) and PRA (Progessive Retinal Atrophy) and the two major eye disorders. There is a genetic test for this, which costs about $400 for both. Dogs that carry either of these should not be bred. Collies can also have other health issues, such as seizures or hip problems. Do your internet research to learn about this.
