New Patient Guide

What is a veterinary ophthalmologist? When would my pet need one?

Veterinary Ophthalmology is a specialization of veterinary medicine that addresses eye health, eye disease, and vision in animals. A veterinary ophthalmologist is involved in all phases of animal eye care, working with general practice veterinarians and other veterinary specialists to help diagnose and treat animal eye problems such as cataracts, glaucoma, vision loss, eye infections, eye cancers, corneal ulcers, dry eye problems, eyelid abnormalities, diseases of the retina, and genetic eye problems. Treatment options and recommendations are made to help return your pet’s health and improve their quality of life.

Make an Appointment

To schedule your appointment, please call our office at (615) 690-9399 and speak with a staff member. Certain conditions, such as cataracts and vision loss, may require extra time for additional testing, so we try to schedule these patients in the mornings. We prefer to schedule all initial evaluations before 3 o’clock. See our office calendar for our operating hours and travel days.

What to Bring

Please be sure to bring all of the medications you are currently using, the name and phone number of your regular veterinarian, and a method of payment.
