Pets can develop eye problems that may require the care of an eye specialist including cataracts in dogs and cat and dog eye infections.
The Ophthalmology service for dogs and cats at VSH is well-equipped with an operating microscope, diode and CO2 lasers, and cryosurgery. A new, state-of-the-art phacoemulsifier is available for cataract surgery. We provide eye certification examinations (CERF) for inheritable eye problems in dogs.
