What is veterinary ophthalmology?
"The eyes are the mirror of the soul"
…and this assumption also applies to our furry friends!
VETERINARY OPTHALMOLOGY is a branch of pet medicine that focuses on eye care and ocular disease prevention.
The animal eye is a very sensitive organ, even more than the human eye. Some breeds are more susceptible than others to specific eye problems. The causes are multiple: excessive dry eyes, eye irritation due to hair rubbing the cornea, protrusion of the eyeball, hereditary reasons.

When to contact a VETERINARY OPHTHALMOLOGIST
"Four eyes see better than two"
In some specific cases, visual disturbances cannot be entirely managed by the veterinarian, but they require specialist support and specific treatments.
Here are 4 situations in which it is appropriate to ask for an expert consultation:
When the animal is under treatment, but its progress has stalled and therapy is not working
If the animal's vision deteriorates progressively
When your pet has diabetes or other previous pathologies
In case of eye injuries
