Eye problems can range from very simple to severe problems that can result in your pet losing their vision or an eye. Our eye exams always consist of a complete examination, plus a visual exam of the eye and a fundic exam. Most pets will also require an eye stain (to look for corneal scratches or abrasions), a tear test (to check tear function of the eye) and an IOP (pressure test to screen for glaucoma, etc). These tests allow us to determine the cause of your pet's eye problem and to screen for diseases that may cause blindness or result in enculation (removal of the eye) if not treated. Some eye conditions require evaluation from a board certified opthalmologist; our staff can arrange a referral in those situations.
We also offer opthalmic surgery such as entropion, grid keratotomy, removal of eyelid masses, repair of prolapsed nicitating membrane (cherry eye), conjunctival flap, and enucleation. We do not perform cataract surgery or shunts for glaucoma.
