Ophthalmology is the branch of veterinary medicine that concerns diseases and conditions that affect your pet’s vision. This includes diagnosing and treating problems with the structures surrounding the eye such as eyelids, eye socket, and conjunctiva. While routine eye issues can be handled by a general practice veterinarian, there are some conditions that may require the attention of a doctor trained in ophthalmology.
Arden Shoreview Animal Hospital has an experienced, board-certified veterinary ophthalmologist on staff to help your pet with these conditions. The most common include:
- Corneal ulcer
- Cherry eye (prolapsed nictitating membrane)
You should bring your pet to see us if you notice any of these eye-related symptoms:
- Redness in the eye
- Tearing or discharge
- Eye sensitivity to light
- The eye may look cloudy
- Bulging eyeball
