Ophthalmology is the specific area of pet care involving treatment of an animal’s eyes.
Eye examinations require specific equipment, such as an ophthalmoscope and specislised dye to detect issues with your pet's eyes including ulcers, scratches and cataracts. Many eye conditions seen in clinic can be treated medically, however some specific conditions may require surgery.
Our practice is fully equipped to offer the following eye surgeries:
- Enucleation (removal) of the eye for severe glaucoma or cancer cases
- Eyelid tumour removal
For more complex cases or surgery that requires more specialised equipments we can refer our patients to a specialist veterinary ophthalmologist for their treatment. In some cases patients can return to us for ongoing treatment whilst having repeat checks with the specialist.
