Keeping Our Eyes on Your Pet
A variety of eye diseases are reported in medicine. The eye is a complex structure, which includes the retina, cornea, lens, iris, and additional structures to support the eye.
Any suspected eye problem should be seen immediately, as it is often impossible to tell the severity of a problem at first glance. Simple problems, such as corneal ulcers, can quickly become worse and result in corneal rupture, or even blindness. Glaucoma can cause sudden blindness unless treated very shortly after its onset.
Your veterinarian should immediately see any eye that is red, cloudy, puffy, or has any discharge. If you notice any of these signs, contact us to schedule an appointment.
