If your companion animal is suffering from damage to its eyes or is having trouble seeing you should make an appointment with our ophthalmology service as soon as possible. We specialize in treatment of ocular diseases like:

  • Cataract
  • Glaucoma
  • Corneal ulcers
  • Retinal disease
  • Eyelid issues

In addition we have the facilities to handle tumors in and around the eye and the surgical facilities and team members to handle eyelid surgery, corneal and intraocular surgery.

Small animal appointments are scheduled Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays (rechecks only). Elective surgeries occur on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. Equine cases are seen Tuesday and Thursday afternoons.  Eye certification appointments are scheduled Friday mornings or in conjunction with other services (such as cardiology evaluations). Emergency cases may be referred by a regular veterinarian directly to the ophthalmology service or can be seen by the ISU emergency service and receive an ophthalmology consultation. Emergency surgeries (if indicated) may occur same day or after-hours.
