The Eye Exam & Tests

The comprehensive eye exam uses special equipment that is not routinely available at primary care vets - this allows for a more detailed exam of your pet's eye.  

Our newly-built exam rooms are equipped with lift tables to comfortably and safely position your pet for the eye exam. Routine eye testing is performed as part of every consultation to ensure your pet has normal tear production and normal eye pressures.  Dr. Reinstein uses a hand-held microscope (called a slit-lamp biomicroscope) to evaluate your pet's eyes on a magnified level.  Examination of the retina and optic nerve is performed to get an even deeper evaluation of your pet's eye and systemic health.
