Ophthalmology cases comprise a significant proportion of the caseload in the hospital as we offer:
- Intensive 24/7 treatment for acute ophthalmic disease
- Medical and surgical management of corneal injury and disease
- Cyclosporin implants for uveitis and keratitis
- Phacoemulsification with intraocular lens placement for cataracts
- Endolaser surgery
Cases are seen by David Rendle BVSc MVM CertEM(IntMed) DipECEIM MRCVS who has an interest and record of publication in equine ophthalmology. Specialist ophthalmic surgical procedures are performed by consultant Chris Dixon BVSc CertVOphthal MRCVS of Veterinary Vision. The hospital is able to provide round the clock care for acute cases with out of hours checks and treatments being performed by on-site veterinary surgeons. Frequently it is this intensive treatment that can make the difference between success and failure in eye cases.
