Eye problems can range from corneal ulcers that are exceptionally painful to sudden vision loss and retinal detachment. In some instances, eye disease can be the first sign of an underlying disease that could affect the overall health of your pet.
Because animal eye disease ranges from simple to complex, prompt evaluation by a veterinary Ophthalmologist is recommended if your pet experiences any of these symptoms:
- Change in eye color
- Loss of vision
- Cloudiness or film over the eye
- Squinting or redness
- Tearing or ocular discharge
- Bulging of the eye or swelling around the eye
