Restoring Vision, Eliminating Pain, Improving Quality of Life For Pets

Ocular disease is common in both cats and dogs, and may be due to injuries, a systemic health issue, breed (some breeds, like those with shorter snouts, are more at risk of eye problems), genetics or aging. Some of the most common eye conditions that we diagnose are listed below.

The Eye Conditions We See:

  • Eyelid abnormalities
  • Cherry eye (prolapsed gland of the third eyelid)
  • Dry eye (keratoconjunctivitis sicca)
  • Corneal disease including ulcers, keratitis
  • Uveitis (inflammation of the middle layer of tissue in the eye wall)
  • Glaucoma
  • Lens disease including cataracts and lens luxation
  • Retinal diseases including detachment and dysplasia
  • Orbital tumors and abscesses
  • Intraocular tumors

Are You a Breeder?

And we’re proud to participate in the ACVO® National Service Animal Eye Exam initiative. This philanthropic event provides free ocular screening exams to qualified service and working animals each May, helping to ensure that formally trained working animals can continue their selfless work serving humans.
