PHOTO CAT EYEThe University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine offers a comprehensive veterinary Ophthalmology service, which is staffed by board certified ophthalmologists, residents, and technicians to provide the most current diagnostic and therapeutic techniques available in veterinary Ophthalmology. Dogs and horses constitute the majority of our Ophthalmology caseload, but we also perform ocular examinations on and treat eye disease of cats, birds, exotic pets, wildlife, and zoo animals. Patients seen by the service are from the local areas as well as from surrounding states. Microsurgery is a major part of the Ophthalmology program, and we have capabilities for phacoemulsification surgery for cataracts, laser surgery, and glaucoma surgery. The Ophthalmology clinic is fully equipped with the latest diagnostic equipment available, including slit lamps, applanation tonometers, and indirect ophthalmoscopes. Other diagnostic and treatment modalities available include ocular ultrasonography, CT, and radiation therapy.
