Ophthalmic Examinations

A slit lamp biomicroscope is used to evaluate the front portion of the eye on a microscopic level. This instrument allows for the optical sectioning of the eye. The back portion of the eye is evaluated using indirect ophthalmoscopy and a series of condensing lenses.

OFA & Certifying Examinations

The Eye Specialist for Animals is proud to be able to provide OFA Eye Certifcation Registry examinations to breeders of dogs. These examinations can be performed only by qualified board-certified veterinary ophthalmologists. These examinations find potential heritable eye diseases in dogs before they are passed on to future generations, helping to limit the amount of genetic eye disease in dogs, and produce healthier dogs.

Please see the OFA website for additional information.
