The eyes are a great source of information about your pet’s health. They can reveal signs of bacterial, viral, or other systemic infections, as well as cancer, hypertension, and diabetes. Many of these conditions can affect your pet’s overall health and quality of life. When your pet’s having an eye health issue, you’ll appreciate the care and attention of a trained veterinary ophthalmologist, Dr. Bill Miller. Our pet ophthalmologist specializes in conditions affecting the eyes and surrounding structures, and is trained in both surgical and non-invasive techniques to restore or retain your pet’s vision. We can diagnose and treat a variety of ocular conditions, including:
- Vision loss
- Lid issues
- Dry eye
- Scratches or eye injuries
We use state-of-the-art technology and equipment onsite to diagnose and treat eye diseases. These tools include direct and indirect ophthalmoscopy, ultrasonography, electroretinography, and digital radiography.
Symptoms of Eye Problems in Pets
The eye conditions that can potentially affect your pet range from minor to severe. These conditions can lead to discomfort and can affect your pet’s vision. If not treated, some can even lead to vision loss. When caught early, treatment can reduce pain and preserve eyesight in many animals. When a pet is experiencing eye trouble, there are usually clear signs. Your pet may increasingly squint or rub his eyes. Other symptoms of eye diseases or disorders for pet owners to look for include:
- Cloudiness or change in color
- Tearing or tear-stained fur
- Red or white eyelid linings
