Practice limited to disease and surgery for the animal eye
Please note our new address: 5800 Interstate 20 West Suite 120. Arlington, Texas 76017.
The Animal Eye Clinic is a specialty referral practice limited to veterinary ophthalmology. Our facility is equipped to provide a full range of veterinary ophthalmic diagnostics, therapeutics, and surgical services. Our surgical services include phacoemulsification for cataract extraction, plastic and reconstruction surgery, corneal repair, glaucoma procedures, intraocular prosthesis, and parotid duct transposition.
Animal Eye Clinic does not offer any ancillary health care services and will examine, diagnose and treat only diseases of the eye and visual apparatus. A specialty practice is designed to be an extension of the services offered by your veterinarian.
The American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists (ACVO) was established in 1970 and is the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) - sanctioned specialty board which sets the standards for advanced training and board certification in veterinary ophthalmology. Approximately 1/3 of the Diplomates (or members) of ACVO are engaged in private practice and accept cases on a referral basis from general veterinary practitioners. The remaining 2/3's are employed by academic institutions, such as the College of Veterinary Medicine at Texas A&M University where they teach veterinary students, perform research, and conduct clinical specialty practices in sophisticated veterinary teaching hospitals.
The goal of ACVO is to promote the highest level of professional competency in veterinary ophthalmology. To meet this goal, the ACVO establishes certification standards and procedures as well as administers examinations to qualified veterinarians aspiring to become Diplomates (members) of the ACVO.
