What is a Veterinary Ophthalmologist?

An ophthalmologist specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the eyes and associated structures. A veterinary ophthalmologist may treat animals of any species.

Highly specialized equipment is used for examination of the eyes, including slit lamp biomicroscopy (photo), indirect ophthalmoscopy, tonometry, and various other modalities. The operating room is equipped to handle the very specific needs of eye surgery. Take a tour of our San Carlos office and our San Francisco office
