Pet Owners

If your regular vet has diagnosed or suspects an eye condition in your pet, they may recommend referral.

Most of the time, your veterinary surgeon will have been treating your pet’s eye problem and will have recommended that you have a referral to us. However, if you have concerns about your pet’s eyes, you can always ask your veterinary surgeon to refer you to us for an examination. We are fully equipped with cutting-edge equipment and facilities for the diagnosis, treatment and management of eye disease.

We are committed to preserving vision wherever possible and promoting the quality of life for each patient. We work closely with vets to ensure we offer a seamless service for both you and your pet.

Abnormal Eyelashes / Hair

Causes discomfort and irritation of the eyes as they rub on the eye surface. They include distichiasis, trichiasis and ectopic cilia.

Cherry Eye

More common in younger animals when the gland within the third eyelid prolapses out of its normal position.

Corneal Ulcers

A wound on the cornea (the window at the front of the eye). They are common, painful and can result in blindness or loss of the eye.

Dry Eye

Dry eye disease encompasses a range of different diseases which result in poor tear film health and significant discomfort, and can cause complications such as ulcers.

Entropion/Ectropion

Inward rolling of the eyelids (entropion) or outward rolling of the eyelids (ectropion) which results in irritation and possible ulcers to the eye surface.

Enucleation

Surgical removal of the eye. It is a procedure used only when the eye is so badly damaged, painful or blind that it cannot be treated any more, or if there is cancer within the eye.

Glaucoma

Caused by an increase in the pressure within the eye. It is a very painful condition and often causes permanent vision loss.

Lens Luxation

This condition occurs when the lens dislocates from its normal position behind the iris within the eye. It can occur suddenly and causes considerable pain.

SCCED

SCCED stands for spontaneous chronic corneal epithelial defect. These are superficial corneal defects (“erosions”) which fail to heal spontaneously
