Booking

You can make an appointment by phoning 07 3341 1981 or
emailing animaleye@vss.net.au.
 

We will endeavour to make the appointment for you as soon as possible. We can be heavily booked, so it is best to book ahead.

 

If your pet is suffering from a condition that is considered an emergency your general practitioner vet can call us to help organise an emergency consultation. 

We ask for your patience and understanding during the booking process as we see patients in order of urgency.

Referral

You, your usual veterinarian and your veterinary ophthalmologist form a special three-way relationship of communication which enables us to provide the optimal care for your pet. Your veterinarian will always be updated about the diagnosis and treatment of your pet's condition whilst in our care.

If you live a long way from our clinic, Animal Eye Services is always available for telephone consultation with your veterinarian regarding your pet’s condition. Some distant veterinarians may also email digital photos so that we can more accurately define their patient’s eye condition. We also invite veterinarians to attend our clinic so that they can observe and gain first hand experience in the diagnosis and treatment of different eye conditions.

Because conditions of the eye can sometimes be an indicator for disease of the rest of the body, we will occasionally suggest referral onto other veterinary specialists such as internal medicine clinicians, oncologists, cardiologists dermatologists or general surgeons. Many of these services exist within the same hospital for your convenience. 

First visit

When you come to see us we will firstly obtain some history from you about your pet’s eye condition. In particular we will ask questions about the duration of the condition, medications which have been used and the perceived response to those medications. We will then perform a complete examination of your pet’s eyes to include:
 

  • Vision assessment

  • Examination of all visible parts of the eye using the binocular indirect ophthalmoscope

  • Slit lamp examination

  • Schirmer Tear Test

  • Tonometry

  • Gonioscopy
     

Please arrive 10 minutes early to your first appointment so that we can have you fill out a new client registration form.

Please also bring with you any medications that are currently being given to your pet.
