Comprehensive Eye Exam

Why Do You Want Your Pet to Have an Eye Exam?

A comprehensive eye exam allows Dr. Low to compile a list of clues that can help uncover disease. Early detection and treatment are essential to avoid undue suffering and to prolong the quality and longevity of your pet's vision. Even subtle changes in your pet's body weight, appetite, water intake, urination and bowel habits, as well as general attitude and activity level, can indicate eye disease. Dr. Low likes to say "The eyes are the windows to the rest of the body". A comprehensive eye exam is a key factor in evaluating your pet's health status and will help you make informed decisions about the care of your special companion.

Animals suffer from eye problems that are similar to those which affect people. These problems include cataracts, glaucoma, tumors of the eye, eyelid defects, inflammation of the eye, dry eye, retinal disease, corneal ulcers and many others. A comprehensive eye exam will determine if your pet has one of these conditions. Just like you should get your eyes checked yearly, pets should see their ophthalmologist once a year too.
