Dogs and cats suffer from many of the same ocular health issues and diseases that affect humans. Cataracts, glaucoma, conjunctivitis, corneal injuries, tumors, and canine eyelid disease are all common ailments that your beloved companion may require treatment for throughout his or her life.
Here at St. Francis Animal Hospital of Vero Beach, we will carefully examine your pet’s eyes using specialized equipment including:
Opthalmoscope - To allow us to determine the health of the retina and vitreous humor in the eye
Tonometry - To allow us to measure intra-ocular eye pressures, which is critical to diagnosing glaucoma
If any eyes issues are found, we can prescribe treatment, and in more serious cases, we can also refer your pet to a veterinary ophthalmology specialist.
If your pet is experiencing any of the following conditions, do not wait for the symptoms to worsen.
Please contact us as soon as possible.
