Resources

There are a number of sites on the internet, which contain information about animal eyes. Below are several sites, which will assist you in the care and treatment of your pet’s eyes.

American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists

The American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists advances the quality of medicine through certification of veterinarians who demonstrate excellence in veterinary ophthalmology. The ACVO is an approved veterinary specialty organization of the American Board of Veterinary Specialties and is recognized by the American Veterinary Medical Association.

American Association of Veterinary Radiologists

The AAVR was founded by a group of veterinary radiologists who were concerned about the level of imaging education being offered to veterinarians and veterinary technicians. In the past, imaging education was largely provided to the veterinary community in an effort to sell imaging equipment. These, albeit well meaning, attempts at imaging education fell short of the mark resulting in missed diagnoses, inappropriate patient care, and unnecessary expenses to the pet owner.

Care Credit Application

CareCredit, a part of GE Capital, offers healthcare financing for consumers through a network of over 150,000 providers. Founded in 1987, CareCredit was initially offered to doctors to help their patients pay for new dental implant technology. Continued advancements in technology and procedures that are often not covered or fully covered by insurance have created new choices for care, increasing the demand for financing options. CareCredit is a healthcare credit card that can be used as a payment option for certain expenses not covered by insurance or to bridge situations when desired care exceeds insurance coverage.

CORL offers a full line of services including clinical comparative ophthalmology, ocular pathology, electrodiagnostics, cornea/anterior segment, ocular immunology, fundus evaluation, vitreoretinal surgery, ocular pharmacology, ocular toxicology, and molecular biology.

I-Med Animal Health

OFA Eye Certification Registry

The purpose of the OFA Eye Certification Registry (ECR) is to provide breeders with information regarding canine eye diseases so that they may make informed breeding decisions in an effort to produce healthier dogs. ECR certifications will be performed by board certified (ACVO) veterinary ophthalmologists. Regardless of whether owners submit their ECR exam forms to the OFA for “certification,” all ECR exam data is collected for aggregate statistical purposes to provide information on trends in eye disease and breed susceptibility. Clinicians and students of ophthalmology, as well as interested breed clubs and individual breeders and owners of specific breeds, will find this useful.
