All IndyVet specialists have received four or more years of post-doctorate training prior to board certification. This training and experience allows our specialists to manage and treat a wide variety of complex diseases and conditions in collaboration with general practitioner colleagues across the state of Indiana. This collaborative approach to case management allows us to provide the most versatile care for patients.
The goal of IndyVet Ophthalmology is to help pets maintain or recover ocular health and vision so they can enjoy an active and healthy lifestyle with their families. A secondary goal is to help identify genetic risk factors of ocular diseases in pets to reduce the perpetuation of these diseases in the breeding population.
What Is A Veterinary Ophthalmologist?
Veterinary ophthalmologists are veterinarians that specialize in diagnosing and treating eye diseases of animals. Veterinary ophthalmologists perform comprehensive examinations of the eye using good light sources with magnification. The exam evaluates all structures of the eye, including specialized tests of visual function. Ophthalmologists treat some eye diseases with medication while others require surgical intervention.
