We treat all ocular conditions, including but not limited to these:
- Dry eye conditions: The tear film is a very important factor for corneal health, especially in the dry New Mexico climate. Dogs with dry eye often squint and have a significant amount of greenish discharge.
- Cataracts: Cataracts in your pets are as easily and as successfully treated as cataracts in humans, enabling our patients—your pets—to see again.
- Glaucoma: Glaucoma is a very painful and often permanently blinding condition that affects many breeds of dogs. The onset of glaucoma can happen very quickly and is considered a true ocular emergency.I am the only veterinary ophthalmologist in New Mexico that offers endocyclophotocoagulation (a cutting-edge laser technology) to surgically treat glaucoma and preserve vision in glaucoma patients.
- Ocular trauma: We treat any kind of ocular trauma, be it a cactus foreign body lodged in your pet’s eye or a corneal laceration from a cat scratch or any other trauma.
The above list is only a sample of the conditions that we treat.
