Eye Health

Are your pet’s eyes the window to his or her world? Eye health is extremely important in maintaining a good quality of life for your pet. The eyes can develop specific diseases or can sustain injury, but they can also be indicators of illness in other body systems. Southside Animal Hospital is proud to offer a full range of ophthalmic diagnostics including the ability to easily measure and monitor our patients’ intraocular pressures (IOP) and check for glaucoma with a Tonopen device. We also perform corneal staining, Schirmer Tear Tests, and fundic exams in-house. Our doctors also have good working relationships with several veterinary ophthalmologists in Central Texas should your pet need a referral for additional diagnostics or a specialized procedure.
