Some of the Common Eye Issues We Treat at DCC Animal Hospital

  • Conjunctivitis – Conjunctivitis is a common ailment in pets, and it usually affects only one eye. The tissue that coats the eye becomes inflamed, causing redness.
  • Epiphora (excessive tearing) – Epiphora is more commonly known as watery eyes. It is a symptom in which your pet’s eyes fill with tears. Some breeds’ eyes run more than others. Excessive tearing is an indication of an eye illness or disease. Epiphora occurs when there is insufficient drainage of tears from the eye.
  • Dry Eye – When the eyes don’t produce enough tear film, it causes dry eyes. The cornea gets dry and irritated without tears which are important to keep it wet and free of debris or infectious germs. This inflammation is extremely painful and causes the eyes to appear red.
  • Cherry Eye– A third eyelid is present in dogs, but it’s generally hidden. A genetic disease in some dogs weakens the ligaments that hold this eyelid in place, causing it to inflame. It occurs in the inner corner of the eye.
  • Corneal Ulceration– An injury caused by rubbing the eye or a scratch from a sharp object is frequently the source of these ulcers. A thin membrane in front of the eye gets damaged during scratching or rubbing, resulting in corneal ulcers.
  • Glaucoma– Glaucoma is an eye issue in which the pressure within the eye, called the intraocular pressure (IOP) increases. Glaucoma is a serious issue and can cause blindness if not treated promptly. Inadequate drainage of the fluid within the eyes can be a reason behind this issue in pets.

Before recommending surgery, our veterinarians perform a thorough eye examination on your pet. This helps our vets figure out the criticalness of the issue and decide the treatment course.
