Eye injuries and infections can be common in horses, whilst often not serious, it is important to check all eye injuries to prevent a minor problem becoming more serious. Eye problems may include traumatic injury, conjunctivitis, ulcers and foreign bodies.
With prompt treatment many eye problems can be brought under control within a few days. If you notice anything unusual with your horses eyes you should contact your vet.
Our diagnostic facilities available include slit lamp biomicroscopy, tonomomentry for glaucoma, direct and indirect ophthalmology, ocular ultrasound, infrared photography, laboratory investigations, digital radiography and CT. For all eye cases we encourage early case discussion as we are passionate about maximising visual outcome
