Ophthalmology is the branch of veterinary medicine that specializes in the evaluation of function and disease of the eye, eyelids and its immediate surroundings. We offer a completely comprehensive ophthalmology service which has been equipped with state of the art equipment and complemented by a well-respected, board certified Veterinary Ophthalmologist along with a dedicated ophthalmology nurse. We are proud to offer comprehensive facilities with additional support reinforced by other specialists in our practice.
As veterinary medical care for your pet has dramatically expanded in recent years, so has our ability to examine, diagnose, and resolve many eye conditions. In step with the rapid advances in veterinary ophthalmology, we offer the latest; techniques, technologies and instrumentation to treat a wide range of ophthalmologic conditions. Our Ophthalmology service offers a full complement of surgical and specialized ophthalmic equipment, including electroretinography (ERG), ultrasonography, phacoemulsification units, an operating microscope, diode laser, and an extensive variety of microsurgical instruments. We have cross sectional imaging, MRI and CT available, to provide accurate diagnoses through advanced imaging. Our 24-hour, 7-days-a-week Emergency Service can readily admit urgent and emergency ophthalmic patients for immediate, after-hours evaluation, until the Ophthalmologist is able to evaluate the condition. Our emergency service also works closely with us to manage intensive medical and postoperative patients that can benefit from overnight and weekend care. PBVS also performs CERF examinations and offers this at no charge to active service dogs. We are proud to support the ACVO’s National Service Dog day each year, and to continue this work year round.
