Veterinary Health Center

Ophthalmology Service

We are dedicated to providing the highest possible standard of care to veterinary patients with eye diseases. A member of the team is available to deal with eye emergencies 24 hours a day. Although most of our patients are dogs, cats and horses, we also treat a wide range of more exotic species.

The provision of a high standard of care in veterinary ophthalmology demands not only clinical expertise but a range of technologically advanced instrumentation, which is not available to most veterinarians.
