Practice limited to disease and surgery for the animal eye
In light of the COVID-19 outbreak, many of our clients are asking if we will remain open to treat their pets. The answer is yes. We are listening to the recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as well as the World Health Organization (WHO) for those that work in the healthcare industry. The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) is in constant communication with us as well, providing practice standards and answers to frequently asked questions. Cleanliness has been a top priority of our offices for over 30 years, however we have increased our protocol to protect our patients and clients from spreading the most recent threat. We have instituted many new cleaning and disinfecting procedures to be utilized at both locations, but we are highlighting the most effective on this post. In the event that the spread of the virus escalates and we are required to implement further precautionary procedures, we will notify our clientele through Facebook and our website. Between each exam, we thoroughly spray every single surface with approved virucidal cleaning agents and let the solution sit on the surfaces before they are wiped down. The staff and doctor are required to wash their hands with surgical grade disinfectants between each room and repeat if they enter/exit an existing room. In addition, our reception staff will be spraying each chair and surface in our lobby after it is touched or occupied by a client and/or patient. We ask for your understanding and patience with us during this time. This protocol will most certainly cause some delay in our appointment times, but we assure you that we are operating at these standards in order to prevent further spread of the virus. If our staff notices a client exhibiting any respiratory symptoms, we will respectfully and discretely ask you to reschedule your appointment. We ask that if you are feeling sick, coughing or sneezing; stay home. We will reschedule your visit when you are feeling better. If you are feeling sick and staying home, but you are concerned about the state of your pet's eyes, please call our office and we will do everything we can to help. A sincere thanks for your cooperation during this time.

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.
