Dogs and cats experience eye problems, just as people do. They can have problems with vision loss as well as conditions experienced by their humans, such as glaucoma, cataracts, corneal injuries and tumors of the eye. However, diseases of pets’ eyes are not always readily apparent to their owners. Although an obvious eye injury might prompt a pet owner to seek immediate veterinary care, the fact is that eye health is important to monitor regularly as a part of overall pet wellness. Dr. Ralph Hamor, a veterinary ophthalmology specialist, will talk about why routine eye check-ups are important for your pet as well as common eye problems seen in animals and how these problems are diagnosed and treated by veterinary eye specialists.
