Ophthalmology is the investigation and treatment of disorders, diseases and injuries of the eye and/or its surrounding structures

Our comprehensive medical and surgical Ophthalmology Service offers first class clinical care for dogs, cats and exotic animals with eye disease and, if requested, we can also accept equine patients in collaboration with Cambridge Equine Hospital.

We have a wealth of experience and access to advanced technology for diagnosing and treating a full range of ocular conditions. Our operating theatre is equipped with very sophisticated instrumentation allowing us to perform specialised surgery for conditions including eyelid abnormalities, corneal and conjunctival diseases, cataracts and glaucoma.

We offer screening of dogs for inherited eye disease under the BVA/KC/ISDS Eye Scheme. Litter screening of puppies between 6 and 8 weeks of age is also offered under the BVA/KC/ISDS Eye Scheme.

The combination of facilities, equipment and expertise allows us to provide the best possible care. This is enhanced further by the availability of Specialists in other related disciplines, allowing the multi-disciplinary approach taken to all patients in our care. This is particularly important for ophthalmology patients, as many eye conditions are associated with systemic disease.

Please visit our Additional Information page for more details. Also, please remember that your consultant will be happy to answer any further questions you may have.

“Having previously visited with our dog, we were already aware of how exceptional the service was. We had no doubts in our minds when we were referred with our cat. From our first initial phone call we felt at ease and understood what to expect. I spoke to vets in Ophthalmology and Neurology and am very grateful to both for giving us daily phone calls whilst she was admitted. The centre itself is clean and again I was grateful to have a separate waiting room for our cat. Although I believe we are likely to be back, she appears to be doing well back home and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend DWR to family and friends.”
