Practice limited to disease and surgery for the animal eye
Due to the effects of the coronavirus outbreak and the increased safety protocols we have implemented, we are continuing to consolidate our staff to practice at one location at a time. Until further notice, the Arlington office will be closed on Wednesdays and Fridays while we see patients in Fort Worth. The Fort Worth location will be closed on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays while we see patients in Arlington. We will continue to see patients Monday-Thursday from 8am-5pm and Fridays from 8am-3pm. We are keeping our hours the same, but we are scheduling our appointments farther apart to minimize congestion and promote distancing. This new schedule may decrease the availability of appointments, therefore we ask that routine rechecks be postponed to a later date. Doing so will allow us to accommodate patients with new or worsening symptoms, emergency conditions and painful diseases.
We are currently allowing patients to enter our building for exams, however we ask that clients limit to one person per pet. Exceptions are made for small children. When you arrive for your appointment, we ask that you call our office to inform the staff that you have arrived. At that time, we will either instruct you to enter our office or wait in your vehicle until we have space available inside. A face mask is required to enter the building and the mask must be worn over the nose and mouth to be effective. If health risks are a concern, we will ask that you remian in your vehicle and we can perform our curbside service. Once you enter or office, a staff member will take your temperature and instruct you where to go for the exam.
If your pet requires surgery, we will not accept toys, bedding, leashes, pet carriers, any form of food container or personal items from your home. To help our clients feel comfortable with allowing us to provide such items, we currently sterilize our leashes and food bowls in our autoclave every night and we limit their use to one patient per item, per day. We sterilize our kennels and runs after each use and we launder all bedding in the appropriate detergent. Thank you for your cooperation.
We will continue to monitor the guidelines offered by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO) and the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) to ensure we are limiting exposure to our patients, staff and clientele.

Treating your pet with the expertise they deserve
Animal Eye Clinic has been serving the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex for over twenty five years. We strive to improve our patient's quality of life through changing how they see their world. Animals, like humans, suffer from vision threatening eye diseases that need medical intervention, and we take that need seriously. Animal Eye Clinic focuses on providing ongoing training, and educational opportunities that will build upon our staff's existing knowledge and skills to help better serve our clientele, patients and referring veterinarians.
To better serve you, Animal Eye Clinic performs most labwork in house.
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.
