Ophthalmology

We can diagnose and treat a number of eye conditions your pet may be suffering from including glaucoma, cataracts, retinal diseases, and more.

Overview

Veterinary ophthalmology deals with the diagnosis and treatment of eye disorders and diseases in cats, dogs, and other animals. Some eye conditions may require surgery to correct, while other conditions require less intensive treatment to manage. We will work closely with you to identify the source of any eye symptoms your pet may be experiencing, and develop the best treatment plans for the long-term health of your pet’s eyes.
