Ophthalmology is the branch of veterinary medicine that concerns diseases, injuries, and conditions that affect your pet’s eyes and vision. This includes diagnosing and treating problems with the structures surrounding the eye such as eyelids, eye sockets, 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.
Sweetbriar Veterinary Clinic has doctors who are experienced in identifying and treating a variety of ophthalmic conditions. The most common include:
- Corneal ulcer
- Cherry eye
