Just like people, animals can also suffer from eye complications that affect their day to day life. These conditions can include cataracts, glaucoma, uveitis, tumors of the eye, eyelid defects, dry eye, retinal degeneration, and corneal ulcers. Our veterinary ophthalmologist here at Cape Cod Veterinary Specialists can provide pets with nearly all of the medical and surgical eye care that is available for humans, while making sure they are comfortable and treated with the utmost care and compassion.
Our ophthalmology services and care options include:
- Tonometry (Tonopen)
