Eye Care for Dogs & Cats

Eye conditions that can potentially affect your pet range from minor to severe. These conditions can lead to discomfort and can affect your pet’s vision. When caught early, treatment can reduce pain and preserve your pet's eyesight.

At Rancho Regional Veterinary Hospital we often see patients with ocular changes that require ocular diagnostics. Some of the most common eye conditions we may see are bacterial conjunctivitis, (which may be secondary to bacterial and viral infections, allergies, hereditary conditions or tumors), Keratoconjunctivitis Sicca (KCS or dry eye), and Glaucoma.

Symptoms of Eye Conditions

There are common signs an animal may exhibit if eye disease is occurring, including:

  • Discharge
  • Squinting
  • Tearing / Tear-Stained Fur
  • Swelling
  • Vision Loss (sudden)
  • Cloudiness
  • Eye Rubbing
  • Change in Eye Color
  • Red Eye
  • Vision Loss (gradual)

Ocular Diagnostics & Treatments

We offer a variety of diagnostics and treatments for animal eye care, including:

  • Eye Flourescein Stain

    Fluorescein is a special type of stain that is administered to the cornea to determine if any damage has been done to the cornea such as an ulcer, lesions or a scratch.

  • Tonometry Pen

    This handheld device can measure your pet's eye pressure in cases where glaucoma may be suspected.

  • Schirmer Tear Test

    A Schirmer tear test is a procedure that allows your veterinarian to determine if your pet is producing enough tears to keep the eyes healthy. This testing is used to diagnose a condition called keratoconjunctivitis sicca, more commonly known as dry eye.

  • PanOptic Ophthalmoscope

    This diagnostic tool enables us to visualize your pet's ocular health and can be useful for diagnosing optic neuritis, chronic glaucoma, and retinal detachments, tears, and degeneration.
