Pet ophthalmology in Torquay
Your pet’s eyes are a window to their world, and their vision is precious. You can rely on the expert pet ophthalmology services at Torquay Animal House to care for your pet’s eyes. We are your trusted partners in ensuring that your pet’s eyesight remains clear and healthy.
Weeping, swollen, or red eyes are all signs that your pet may be experiencing an eye condition. These conditions can be uncomfortable and, if left untreated, can progress rapidly, potentially leading to blindness or the need for eye removal.
Our dedicated team is equipped with the knowledge and specific equipment necessary to perform comprehensive eye examinations for your pets. These examinations may include the use of magnification, direct and indirect ophthalmoscopy, and tonometry to measure eye pressure accurately. To assess the corneal surface for ulceration, we may also use a special dye called fluorescein to identify any damage to the cornea.
Medical and surgical options
Many eye conditions can be effectively treated through medical interventions. However, specific cases may require surgical procedures to address the underlying issue. At Torquay Animal House, we offer a range of eye surgeries to ensure your pet’s optimal eye health:
- Corneal ulcer repair: Surgery to address ulcers on the eye’s surface.
- Cherry eye surgery: Correcting a protruding third eyelid in dogs.
- Enucleation (eye removal): Necessary in cases of severe glaucoma or cancer.
- Entropion surgery: Preventing ocular damage from inward-pointing eyelashes or eyelids.
- Eyelid tumour removal: Addressing growths and tumours on the eyelids.
Our team’s expertise and commitment to your pet’s well-being make Torquay Animal House the ideal choice for pet ophthalmology services. We understand the significance of your pet’s vision and are dedicated to preserving and improving their eye health.
