Eye specialists work with both preventive care and treatment.
Eye problems often need immediate care and all of AniCura's animal hospitals and clinics can take care of acute cases. When necessary, patients are referred to an eye specialist.
AniCura values the ability to prevent disease. Ophthalmologists play an important preventive role in various breeding programmes where they examine the eyes of cats and dogs.
