Ophthalmic (eye) treatment

Our veterinarians understand how important the eye is and it is why we take particular care in this area, after all you and your pet only have two of them. 
Eye examinations require specific equipment, such as magnification, indirect ophthalmoscope (a magnifying light to look into the eye) and tonometer to measure eye pressure.  To assess the corneal surface for ulceration, we may also use a special dye called fluorescein (it glows a green/yellow colour under a UV light) to identify damage to the cornea (the clear layer at the front of the eye).  Many eye conditions can be treated medically, however, specific conditions may require surgery
Our practice is fully equipped to offer the following eye surgeries:

As ophthalmology is a specialised area, we also understand our limitations and as such we can also refer your pet to a specialist veterinary ophthalmologist for specialised procedures such as eye ultrasound, vision testing or cataract removal.
