Pets can suffer from many of the same eye diseases as people. The most common are cataracts, glaucoma, retinal disease, corneal injuries, and dry eye. We use similar equipment and procedures that are used on humans by traditional ophthalmologists. Just as your family physician may refer you to a specialist, your family veterinarian will recommend that you see a veterinary ophthalmologist if your pet requires advanced diagnostic tests or surgery. An ophthalmologist has had expert training focused entirely on the eye and is the best option to preserve or restore your pet’s vision.
