Equine Eye Vets Veterinary Eye Care for Horses
We consult on horses with a wide range of ophthalmic problems including:
Many horses require sedation and eyelid nerve blocks to effectively examine the eye. We recommend keeping the animal out of direct sunlight for several hours after the examination if the pupil is dilated.
If surgical procedures are required we have facilities, equipment and specialist support for equine anesthesia and ophthalmic surgery or microsurgery. Examples of surgical procedures we can perform include:
At Equine Eye Vets we recognize that general anesthesia is major cause of concern for owners with horses undergoing surgery. We aim to provide state of the art anesthesia protocols and surgical monitoring with all procedures. This includes availablitly of a board certtified anesthesiologsit with equine experience for any of the more involved or longer porcedures.
We also appreciate that horses, like people and other animals, often have better surgical outcomes when attention is paid to pain relief during and after surgery. We strive to ensure that animals undergoing any surgical procedures receive adequate pain medication to keep them as comfortable as possible while they recover from surgery or any potentially painful procedures.
