Seek help if your pet is squinting or has
discharge from the eye.

If your pet has a sore eye, you must not wait and see what happens. Eye problems are painful and can deteriorate quickly leading to more severe problems that include permanent damage or even loss of vision.

Eye Exams

We will check the eye both on the inside and the outside. We check the conjunctiva, nicitans and eyelids as well as the cornea and the fundus of the eye. We can do a Schirmer Tear Test to check your pet’s tear function and make sure they don’t have dry eye which presents initially as red eyes and recurrent conjunctivitis. We can also test the pressure in your pet’s eye to check for glaucoma and uveitis using our Tonopen.

Cherry Eye

Cherry eye is when the gland of the third eyelid herniates and forms a large red lump on the medial part of the eye. It is a frustrating condition to treat. It needs to be repaired so that your dog doesn’t develop dry eye. We perform a surgery called the “pocket technique” to preserve the herniated tear gland. This technique has a very good success rate.

Non-healing Corneal Ulcers

Corneal ulcers are like a pot hole in the road. It is an erosion on the cornea or the “windshield” of the eye. Ulcers can be superficial or deep. We can fix them all using diamond burr debridement or corneal grafting if necessary. The cause of the ulcer must be identified for good results. Learn all about corneal ulcers here

Entropion And Ectropion Surgery

If the eyelids are rolling inwards rubbing your pet’s eyes this is called entropion. This is painful and feels like having sand in the eyes and can lead to non-healing ulcers and scarring of the eyes. Dr Rob can fix this easily for your pet. Ectropion is where the eyelids roll out causing drying of the cornea and ulcerations.
