Our board-certified ophthalmologist specializes in treating eye diseases and disorders in pets.

We work closely with your pet’s primary care veterinarian to provide care for all ocular diseases that may be affecting your pet. Some diseases will require surgery, but many can be managed with medication.

  • Cataracts
  • Injuries
  • Drainage
  • Infections
  • Vision Loss
  • Tumors
  • Glaucoma
  • Dry Eye

Board-Certified Veterinary Ophthalmologist

A board-certified veterinary ophthalmologist undergoes advanced ophthalmological training that meets American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists (ACVO) guidelines for specialists. This includes the successful completion of an internship, residency program, and rigorous examinations.

Examination & Diagnosis

Our new patient exams include the following:

  • Slit Lamp Biomicroscopy, which evaluates the front of the eye
  • Indirect Ophthalmoscopy, which evaluates the back of the eye
  • Tonometry, which checks intraocular pressure
  • Schirmer Tear Testing, which checks tear production
  • Fluorescein Staining, which is used to evaluate the corneal surface

Based on your pet's examination, additional diagnostic testing may be recommended. This might include ocular ultrasound, electroretinography (ERG) or gonioscopy if your pet is at risk of glaucoma.

Our ophthalmologist will review the examination results and create a treatment plan that is tailored to your pet's needs.
