Animals are at a disadvantage when they suffer from eye diseases since they cannot tell us directly that something is wrong. It’s up to us to be aware of the symptoms of eye related diseases in our pets. If your dog is constantly bumping into furniture or stumbling on stairs, he could be suffering from macular degeneration.
At the Animal Specialty Eye Clinic, we provide animal slit lamp biomicroscopy services to treat this disease and other eye problems such as detached retina, injury to the cornea and blockages of the retinal vessel.
Have you noticed these signs in your pet? Don’t take them lightly. Contact us today to learn what’s wrong and how it can be fixed.
- Tonometry/Gonioscopy (Glaucoma Testing)
Glaucoma is one of the most common eye diseases. Whether in humans or animals, it should be taken seriously since its progressive nature could lead to loss of vision.
On a positive note, early detection through regular and complete animal eye examinations could protect your pet’s vision from further damage. One of these exams is gonioscopy, which involves draining the fluid in the eye to decrease the pressure.
If you think your pet’s having trouble seeing, contact us today.
Many are aware of the painful effects of cataracts, inflammation in the eye, glaucoma and many other eye diseases on humans. The signs and the symptoms of these diseases are somewhat similar in animals. If you’ve observed your pet’s pupils dilating, it could be suffering from a retinal detachment. As animal retinal specialist and a leading animal glaucoma clinic, we can help you in this situation.
Animal Eye Specialty Clinic offers a retinal examination known as ophthalmoscopy, which detects and evaluates symptoms of a detached retina or eye diseases such as glaucoma in your pet. This test and is performed as part of your pet’s complete eye exam. You can help keep your pet from suffering by ensuring early detection and necessary treatment.
Contact us today to schedule your pets complete eye exam and ensure they aren’t suffering from vision problems.
Electroretinogram is an examination of your pet’s retina, which requires the animal to adapt to darkness prior to the examination. By placing your pet in a darkened room, we’re able to make your pet’s eyes light sensitive in order to produce accurate results.
Electroretinogram is useful in diagnosing and assessing animals that suffer from inherited retinal degenerations. These include diseases such as goldmann-favre syndrome or usher syndrome in animals.
If your pet appears to be having sight problems, contact us today.
Sometimes, an ophthalmologists' view of inside the animal’s eyes is restricted, such as when examining for cataracts. As an alternative, an animal ocular ultrasound is performed.
This procedure is non-invasive and used in many instances to diagnose congenital abnormalities, bleeding in the eye, dislocated lens, cataracts, glaucoma, and adenovirus 1 in dogs. We can assure you that the animal ocular ultrasound does not hurt at all and is very effective for diagnosing the source of animal vision problems.
Contact us today if you believe your pet is suffering from sight problems.
- Ophthalmic Laser Procedures
Another great service the Animal Eye Specialty Clinic provides is animal ophthalmic laser surgery. The light beam emitted from this laser can cut thin membranes inside the eye that are blocking vision. Lasers can also sculpt the shape of the eye’s surface to improve sight.
Ophthalmic laser procedures are done in order to treat diseases of the retina such as retinal vein occlusions, histoplasmosis, central serous retinopathy and cancer of the eye.
If you believe your pets sight could be better, contact us today.
- Phacoemulsification (Cataract Surgery)
Are your pet’s eyes cloudy? Then he may be suffering from cataracts. At the Animal Eye Specialty Clinic, we’re animal cataract specialist with vast experience treating dog cataracts, cat cataracts, horse cataracts, rabbit cataracts and hamster cataracts.
Possibly the most effective form of treatment is cataracts surgery, which replaces the natural lenses with artificial ones. Restore your pet’s vision with the Animal Eye Specialty Clinic’s cataract surgery for pets.
If your pet is suffering from cataracts, call us today.
Eyelid surgeries are mainly done on patients suffering from ectropion and entropion. That is, animals with outward rolling eyelids or inward rolling eyelids. These conditions exert pressure on the cornea, causing great discomfort.
At the Animal Eye Specialty Clinic, with just an incision or small surgery, the discomfort caused from these conditions can easily be alleviated.
If your pet is suffering from a rolling eyelid, visit us today to for an examination and to discuss your options for animal eyelid operations.
- Grafting Techniques for Corneal Disease
An unhealthy cornea affects an animal’s vision by scattering or distorting light causing glare and blurred vision. At the Animal Eye Specialty Clinic, our animal grafting techniques for corneal disease help to correct corneal disease and restore your pet's vision.
Grafting techniques are useful in replacing central corneal tissues that have been damaged by disease or eye injury. These unwanted tissues are replaced with healthy corneal tissue donated from an eye bank. Keratitis and eye injuries are just a couple of the corneal diseases commonly treated by grafting techniques.
If your pet is having trouble seeing, contact us today.
- Canine Eye Registry Foundation Examinations
Many animals are diagnosed with heritable eye diseases. The Canine Eye Registration Foundation (CERF) was founded to aid in eliminating all instances of these disorders. Canine Eye Registration (CERF) examinations are considered valid for one year. While these exams do not guarantee that your pet is not a carrier of the genetic ocular disease, a passing test proves that at the time of the test, no genetic ocular disease was diagnosed.
If a dog’s status is unknown, breeding is not recommended. In fact, a puppy should be screened as early as six weeks old. Ideally, breeding animals should be evaluated by one of our veterinary ophthalmologists to rule out structural abnormalities of the eyes. This examination detects diseases such as punctate and hypermature cataracts, aberrant cilia and corneal ulcer.
Ensure that this disease isn’t passed on to the next generation of your pets by bringing your dog in today.
