Ophthalmology

The doctors and staff of the AMC strive to provide your pet with quality, state-of-the-art, and compassionate ophthalmic treatment. Animals suffer from eye problems that are similar to those which affect humans. These problems include cataracts, glaucoma, dry eye, corneal ulceration, tumors of the eye, eyelid defects, inflammation of the eye and surrounding tissues, retinal degeneration, and many others. Due to rapid advances in the knowledge, techniques, and equipment necessary to provide specialty eye care to veterinary patients, our doctors may choose to consult a specialist for eye problems that are unusual or for those that have not responded to initial therapy. Comprehensive evaluations provided at the AMC include but are not limited to:

  • Fluorescein staining
  • applanation tonometry
  • Direct and indirect ophthalmoscopy
  • Nasolacrimal Flushing
  • Schirmer Tear Testing
  • Indirect and Direct Retinal Examination
  • Conjunctival Scrapes and Biopsies
  • Enucleation
  • Repair of Prolapsed Nictitans Glands
  • Superficial Keratectomy for Corneal lesions
  • Third Eyelid Repair and Removal
  • Eyelid Wedge Resection
  • Wedge-plasty and H-plasty for Eyelid Mass Removals
