Pets, just like their human counterparts, can get glaucoma. The signs can be as vague as a red eye, but may become severe enough to result in a large bulging eye. This is why it important to exam the eyes yearly and check the eye pressure. Fortunately, here at the Animal Place we have an instrument called TonoVet that measures the pressure within the eye in just seconds! However, for more serious or complex issues, we might refer you to an ophthamologist for further assessment and treatment.
Ophthalmologist we recommend:
Dr. Eric Smith – (301) 990-6373
Dr. Catherine Nunnery – (301) 926-3300
Dr. Kyshia Davis – (240) 454-3771
