About Eyeshine Veterinary

AAHAEyeshine Veterinary is an AAHA-accredited referral practice that follows a team-based healthcare model. We collaborate with each pet family and primary care veterinarian to determine the optimal treatment for each individual patient. Education is crucial to decision-making, which is why Eyeshine Veterinary takes time to answer questions and uses the latest technology to help illustrate each patient’s specific findings. Eyeshine also aims to make veterinary ophthalmology care more available by providing increased non-traditional hours and appointments for equine patients both in-hospital and in-the-field. Our paperless practice allows for more rapid, efficient communication between all members of your pet’s healthcare team.

“At Eyeshine Veterinary, we provide a compassionate, state-of-the-art, new approach to veterinary ophthalmology services for pets and their people.” – Dr. Zoe Reed

Common Questions

 What types of Animals do you treat at Eyeshine Veterinary?

 As we like to say at Eyeshine Veterinary, we treat ‘Anything with Eyes’.  Dr. Reed’s post-veterinary training was in Comparative Ophthalmology and she has worked on everything from bamboo sharks to bears to pelicans to more Pugs than you can count – and she loves seeing all of them!

What additional training do veterinarians have to complete to become a specialist?

 After 4 years of veterinary school to become a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine, veterinary specialists – also called diplomates – must complete an additional three to five years of advanced training in their dedicated field.  This training includes both clinical hands-on practice, didactic learning, publication-quality research, and passing a multi-day board certification examination.

Is being a ‘specialist’ the same as a veterinarian that has a ‘special interest’ in a particular area of veterinary medicine?

 No. Only veterinarians that have completed a formal residency program and met all the criteria for their particular area of veterinary specialization can call themselves specialists according to the American Veterinary Medical Association.
