Ophthalmic surgery is the specific area of pet care involving treatment of an animal’s eyes.
Our veterinarians have an interest in eye disease and have recently completed further training in ophthalmic medicine and surgery. Many eye conditions can be treated medically, however, specific conditions may require surgery.
Our practice is fully equipped to offer the following eye surgeries:
- Enucleation (removal) of the eye for severe glaucoma or cancer cases
- Entropion surgery to prevent ocular damage from inward pointing eye lashes/eyelids
- Ectropion surgery to correct outward facing lower eyelids
- Eyelid tumour removal
- Surgery to repair corneal ulcers (ulcers on the eye surface)
Our veterinarians can also refer your pet to a specialist veterinary ophthalmologist for specialised procedures such as eye ultrasound, vision testing or cataract removal.
