Veterinary Vision offers a dedicated comprehensive ophthalmology referral service with Gary Lewin and Chris Dixon. We are fully equipped with full microsurgical operating facilities for extra and intra-ocular surgery, including cataract extraction and intra-ocular laser surgery.
We are always happy to examine ocular lesions that have been identified at pre-purchase examination and give an opinion on their significance. Ocular lesions identified at PPE can often present problems for the examining veterinary surgeon since the duration, rate of progression and clinical significance of the lesions is often not easily determined on a simple ophthalmoscopic examination.
However in the majority of cases we are able to give an opinion on the likely significance of an ocular lesion now and in the future. We are always pleased to discuss such cases with yourselves or examine the horse on behalf of the purchaser or vendor.
We perform all types of intra-ocular and extra-ocular surgery including:
- Cataract Surgery by phacoemulsification with intraocular lens placement
- Lens Luxation Surgery
- Endolaser Surgery for Cystic Corpora Nigra, Melanomas and Retinal detachments
- Corneal Surgery
- Entropion correction
- Eyelid reconstruction
- Treatment of distichia and ectopic cilia with cryoepilation
- Orbital Surgery
