Through excellent communication with you and your referring veterinarian we are committed to exceeding your expectations by providing high quality, compassionate, state-of-the-art ophthalmic care to your pets. The Animal Eye Institute excels at the diagnosis, surgery, and medical treatment of eye disorders for companion animals (dogs and cats), large animals (horses, llamas, cattle), exotic and pocket pets. Most procedures are possible to perform on an out-patient basis.
