Welcome to Our Ophthalmic Care Services for Your Beloved Pets
At Goodna Vet, we understand the significance of your pet's vision and overall eye health. Our dedicated team specialises in ophthalmic care, a vital aspect of comprehensive pet healthcare. Just as humans need specialised eye care, animals deserve the same attention and expertise when it comes to their visual well-being.
What is Ophthalmology for Pets?
Ophthalmology is a specialised field of veterinary medicine that focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of eye-related conditions in animals. From routine eye examinations to advanced surgical procedures, our skilled veterinarians are here to ensure that your furry friend's eyesight remains vibrant and healthy.
The Importance of Eye Examinations
Eye examinations are a crucial aspect of maintaining your pet's ocular health. Our clinic is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment, including the ophthalmoscope, which allows us to meticulously examine the intricate structures within the eye. We also utilise fluorescein dye, which, when exposed to UV light, helps us detect any potential damage to the cornea. Additionally, we employ a tonometer to assess the intraocular pressure, a critical factor in identifying conditions like glaucoma.
Comprehensive Medical Treatment
Many eye conditions can be effectively managed through medical interventions. Our experienced veterinarians are well-versed in diagnosing and treating a wide range of ocular issues. Whether it's conjunctivitis, dry eye syndrome, or infections, we tailor our treatments to your pet's unique needs, ensuring their comfort and well-being.
Advanced Surgical Expertise
In some cases, surgical intervention becomes necessary to preserve your pet's vision and alleviate discomfort. Our veterinary professionals possess the skills and knowledge to perform a variety of eye surgeries, including:
Enucleation: In severe cases of glaucoma or cancer, the removal of the affected eye may be required to prevent further complications.
Entropion Surgery: To address the discomfort caused by inward-pointing eyelashes/eyelids that can lead to eye damage.
Ectropion Surgery: Correcting outward-facing lower eyelids to enhance your pet's comfort and eye health.
Eyelid Tumor Removal: Skillfully removing eyelid tumours to ensure your pet's well-being.
Cherry Eye Surgery: Rectifying protruding third eyelids in dogs for improved visual health.
Corneal Ulcer Repair: Surgical solutions for corneal ulcers, promoting optimal healing and eye function.
