If you just welcomed a new pet to your family and would like an eye exam to feel confident their eyes are healthy, we are here for you!
If your pet is showing vision deficits or you see changes to their eyes, book an eye exam as soon as possible. Some eye diseases may not seem severe at home, but require immediate treatment to prevent blindness and preserve comfort.
If your pet was diagnosed with a lifelong ocular disease, an annual or biannual eye exam is recommended even if the disease appears controlled at home. Some diseases have progressive changes that require modifications to the treatment plan.
If your dog was diagnosed with diabetes, they are more likely to develop eye disease as a secondary problem. Book an eye exam with us to determine if additional therapies are warranted. Please note that cats are less likely to develop these diabetic conditions.
If you have a pet and are thinking about breeding them, make sure to schedule an eye exam to register both parents through the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals. These annual eye exams can detect minor and major inheritable eye diseases that could be passed down for generations. For more information, visit www.ofa.org.
If your well-being depends on a special service animal or if you are responsible for a working animal (military, search and rescue, police force), please register them for a complimentary eye exam during the month of May. These annual screening exams are designed to detect eye disease that may affect vision. When your safety depends on their sight, we are here for you.
