WHEN TO SEE A PROFESSIONAL
The majority of the cases seen at Atlanta Veterinary Eye Clinic are referred by a general veterinarian. The referral is made when an ophthalmic problem is either visible or suspected. The problem may range from an ocular injury to a loss of vision. Consulting an ophthalmologist allows the pet and owner to receive the benefits from specialized diagnosis and treatment.
Does your pet rub his eyes often?
Do your pet’s eyes appear swollen or enlarged?
Do your pet’s eyes appear cloudy or is there any redness?
Is there any discharge in the corners of the eyes?
Does your pet appear to tear excessively?
Have you noticed your pet squinting or keeping his eye(s) closed?
Does your pet occasionally bump into things?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, contact your general veterinarian as soon as possible to facilitate a referral.
Here are some common symptoms that we see at AVEC and problems that they could be related to:
Loss of vision: Cataracts, PRA, glaucoma retinal degeneration or retinal detachment.
