The “Eyes” Have It

A veterinary ophthalmologist examines a black and white dog's eyes while a vet tech helps.Pets need healthy eyes just like humans. And just like with humans, there are ophthalmologists who are specially trained to diagnose and treat eye problems.

BluePearl veterinary ophthalmologists treat eye conditions like corneal ulcers, glaucoma and cataracts, as well as eye injuries. Our specialists use surgical and non-invasive techniques to help your pet retain or restore their vision.

Sometimes it’s difficult to realize that our pets are in pain or that they have blurry vision. However, once their eye illness has been addressed and they’re no longer in discomfort, their return to “puppy-like” behavior can be noticeable. Take a look at how Dr. Ellen Belknap, an ophthalmologist at BluePearl in Lawrenceville, GA, treats two pets with different eye conditions.

Every May, BluePearl ophthalmologists across the U.S. contribute their time and expertise to participate in the annual ACVO/Stokes National Service Animal Eye Exam.
