Like humans, animals can develop a variety of diseases that can affect their vision and ocular health. Common conditions include cataracts, glaucoma, corneal ulcers, infections, dry eye, tumors, trauma, and autoimmune diseases. During your appointment, our board-certified ophthalmologists and technical team members will be able to provide a diagnosis and discuss treatment options that are best suited to your pet’s needs. 

If your pet exhibits any of the following symptoms, they may benefit from an evaluation by one of our board-certified ophthalmologists:

  • Abnormal appearance or color of one or both eyes
  • Signs of pain, holding an eye closed, or rubbing the eyes
  • Excessive ocular discharge
  • Changes in vision, manifested by running into objects or not following normal visual cues

Our techniques for diagnosing and treating ocular conditions:

  • Breed certification examinations for purebred dogs (OFA)
  • Comprehensive ophthalmic examination
  • Electroretinography
  • Mass removal and other corrective surgeries
  • Microsurgery, including corneal repair and cataract removal
  • MRI and CT scans
  • Ocular and orbital ultrasonography
  • Ophthalmic laser surgeries and cryotherapy
  • Tear-film testing
  • Tonometry (ocular pressure)
