Equine Eye Care

At the Hospital or In the Field

In addition to providing thorough ophthalmic examinations, Eyeshine Veterinary offers advanced diagnostics and provides comprehensive, evidence-based medical and surgical treatments for ophthalmic conditions in all veterinary species. Eyeshine Veterinary proudly provides ophthalmology services for our equine patients either at a local equine hospital or in the field.

Diagnostics: Slit-lamp Biomicroscopy, Ophthalmoscopy, Tonometry, Electroretinography, Fundic Imaging, Ocular Ultrasound, etc.

Common Ophthalmic Conditions in Horses: Infections and Traumatic Ulcerations of the Cornea, Uveitis (Inflammation inside the Eye), Immune-mediated Ocular Conditions, Adnexal Trauma and Hereditary Abnormalities, etc.

Surgical Procedures: Corneal Grafting, Intrascleral Prosthesis (an alternative to eye removal for some patients), Cryotherapy for Glaucoma, Neoplasia, and Inherited Conditions, Corneal Keratotomy (linear grid and diamond burr), Reconstructive Eyelid and Third Eyelid Procedures, Cataract Removal Surgery (phacoemulsification), Parotid Duct Transposition, Cyclosporine Implants, etc.

Appointments: Eyeshine Veterinary is committed to making ophthalmology care more available to horses and their families, which is why we have the ability to see your horse at a local equine hospital or in-the-field. Eyeshine Veterinary reserves every Tuesday morning for equine ophthalmology appointments. * If we have time in our schedule to see your horse on a different day, we will let you know when you call to schedule an appointment.

While your primary equine DVM is always welcome at your horse’s ophthalmology appointments, her/his presence is required at all Initial, In-the-Field ophthalmology exams as Eyeshine Veterinary does not carry medications for equine sedation. We understand that not every horse will require sedation for an ophthalmology exam, but we want to make this painless but unusual experience as stress-free as possible for your horse.
