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 may want additional details about your pet’s history, so be prepared to discuss overall health and current eye issues.
A licensed veterinary technician or a 4th year veterinary student will review your pet’s history and current medications with you in the lobby prior to the examination.
We request that our pet parents wait in the lobby while the doctor performs the ophthalmic examination. Due to the small size of the exam rooms and being a teaching facility, our goal is to provide exposure to ophthalmology for 4th year veterinary students. The students do not perform the examination but are present to observe and discuss the diagnosis with the ophthalmologist. We understand your concern about not being present during the exam however, we have found that the vast majority of our patients are much calmer during the exam, thus allowing us to complete the exam more quickly with minimal stress to the patient.
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.
Please allow 48-72 hours for all refill requests
