Ophthalmology

Ophthalmology is the medical and surgical treatment of the problems of the eye.  

We carry an advanced range of ophthalmic equipment including

  • Slit lamp; this technology allows us to perform a very detailed exam of all areas of the eye.  This goes far beyond that achievable with a normal ophthalmoscope.  
  • Digital tonometry; our tonometer allows us to monitor the pressure of our patient’s eye.  This is very useful in an emergency situation but also when monitoring for long term conditions like glaucoma.  
  • Surgical Loupes; to improve our surgeons vision when performing advanced surgeries on the eyes and eyelids

One of our clinicians Dr Maria Cisneros is currently working towards Advanced Practitioner status in veterinary ophthalmology.
