What to Expect
We strive to make your visit as easy as possible. When arriving to Animal Eye Clinic, bring in the completed New Client Information form and any information your primary veterinarian may have given you. Please arrive 15 minutes early for your appointment to complete paperwork. Please bring your current medications to the appointment. The doctor will want additional details about your pet’s history, so be prepared to discuss overall health and current eye issues.
A licensed veterinary technician will review your pet’s history and current medications and will perform schirmer tear tests to evaluate current tear flow. The technician will also measure the intraocular pressure in the eye prior to the examination. Once the diagnostic tests are completed, the doctor will perform a complete ophthalmic examination that includes slit lamp biomicroscopy, indirect ophthalmoscopy and fluorescein stains.
Once the exam is completed, the doctor will discuss the exam findings and diagnosis with you and make treatment recommendations. If surgery or further diagnostics are recommended, a detailed estimate will be provided.
