  • Discharge or crusty gunk in your dog or cat’s eyes
  • Uncontrollable tearing
  • Red or white eyelid linings
  • Cloudiness in the eye or a change in eye color

Common Canine Eye Conditions

If you’re concerned that your dog may have trouble seeing or you’ve started to notice that Fido’s eyes have become cloudy, you may want to schedule an appointment with your local veterinarian. Issues in canine eyes can progress fairly quickly, and eye pain tends to be one of the more unnoticed conditions in dogs. For the sake of your dog’s comfort and quality of life, it’s important to get any eye issues treated as soon as possible. Whether your dog is suffering from cataracts, cherry eye, glaucoma, or dry eye, our staff of ophthalmologists can help. To learn more about common canine eye conditions or to schedule an appointment at one of our facilities, contact us today.

Common Feline Eye Conditions

Your cat’s eye health is critical to their overall wellbeing. Unfortunately, our feline friends can have a variety of eye issues. Most cats often show a decreased appetite due to eye or facial pain, so be sure to take note of Kitty’s feeding habits. Many cats suffer from conjunctivitis, corneal ulcers, and uveitis. If you’re interested in learning more about feline eye conditions or you have questions regarding your pet, contact our team today.

What To Expect From Your Visit

When you visit our state-of-the-art veterinary clinic in Maitland or Orlando, you may be asked to provide our staff with a thorough history of your pet’s past and recent health issues. We advise all of our patients to bring laboratory results and any other information that may be relevant to your pet’s condition. If your pet is currently taking any medications, we would like you to bring those in as well. Your very first visit with our veterinary ophthalmologists will likely consist of a thorough eye exam. In some cases, additional diagnostic testing may be required. This may include the measurement of your pet’s tear production or intraocular pressure.

During your pet’s initial eye examination, your veterinarian will take the time to speak with you about any medical treatment or surgery options that may be beneficial for your pet. In most cases, a reexamination may be required to ensure the success of your pet’s treatment option.

At Animal Eye Associates, our board-certified veterinary ophthalmologists are trained in ocular micro surgery. Using the latest surgical and anaesthesia equipment, we strive to provide the safest and most effective eye surgeries for all of our furry clients. Our doctors are trained in pre and post-operative pain management and will treat your pet as if they are one of our own.
