When it comes to your pet’s health, their eyes are just as important as any other part of their body. At Concord Veterinary Hospital, we understand the importance of maintaining your pet’s eye health and offer a range of ophthalmology services to help diagnose and treat any eye-related issues.
The first step in maintaining your pet’s eye health is to bring your pet to regular eye examinations with our vets. During an eye exam, our vets will thoroughly examine your pet’s eyes and surrounding structures to check for any abnormalities or signs of disease. This can include evaluating the cornea, lens, iris, retina, and optic nerve.
If your pet is experiencing eye-related issues, our vet is equipped to provide a range of diagnostic services to help determine the cause of the problem.
These diagnostic services may include:
- Tonometry: Tonometry is used to measure the pressure inside your pet’s eye and is commonly used to diagnose conditions such as glaucoma.
- Fluorescein Staining: Fluorescein staining is used to identify corneal ulcers or abrasions.
- Tear Production Testing: Tear production testing is used to diagnose conditions such as dry eye or keratoconjunctivitis sicca (KCS).
If your pet is diagnosed with an eye-related condition, our vet will work closely with you to develop an appropriate treatment plan. Treatment options may include:
- Eye Drops or Ointments: Eye drops or ointments may be prescribed to help manage conditions such as conjunctivitis, corneal ulcers, or dry eye.
- Surgery: Surgery may be necessary to treat conditions such as cataracts, glaucoma, or eyelid abnormalities.
Concord Veterinary Hospital is staffed by highly trained and experienced veterinary professionals who are dedicated to providing the best possible care for your pets. Our team has extensive knowledge and expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of eye-related issues in cats and dogs and provides a comprehensive approach to their medical care.
