Equine Ophthalmology

A horse eye exam in progress

Staffed by veterinarians who are board by the American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists (ACVO), residents, and technicians we provide the most current diagnostic and therapeutic techniques available in veterinary ophthalmology.

Specialty ophthalmic services are provided to cases referred from general veterinary practioners as well as other veterinary ophthalmologists.

Horses make up a large number of our cases, and are most commonly evaluated for corneal ulceration, squamous cell carcinoma and equine recurrent uveitis.

Our services range from outpatient evaluation and treatment to admission to the UTVMC for intensive monitoring and treatment.

Additionally we provide advanced equine ocular surgical procedures, including various options for corneal reconstruction, cataract surgery, and eyelid surgery. We team with large animal veterinary anesthesiologists to provide the safest surgical recovery possible for horses with ocular diseases.
