Ophthalmology is a branch of medicine which is responsible for studying the eyes, the eye and associated structures in sight. Thus, training and appropriate diagnostic instruments such as complex structure, we can explore, diagnose and treat many diseases. Problems not only in different parts of the eye, such as corneal ulcers, cataracts, uveitis … but also to evaluate vision and even diagnose systemic diseases that initially displayed at eye level.
The eye and its related structures are highly specialized, with a very specific organization and function. This means that they require a special and particular study. To have good knowledge is required, as in other veterinary specialties spend time and train specifically, both theoretical and practical, in order to achieve a high level of knowledge and to meet the needs of our patients .
As passionate about veterinary ophthalmology, I have a double degree in veterinary ophthalmology. I took in 2008 Postgraduate Course in Ophthalmology at the University of Barcelona, and recently I have also obtained a diploma from the Ecole National Ophthalmologie CES Vétérinaire Toulouse. It also formed part of the ESVO (European Society of Veterinary Ophthalmology), I attended numerous national and international conferences and have made trainings at universities and private schools, to continue on learning and training.
In our hospital we have highly advanced diagnostic instruments, such as a Tonopen to measure the intraocular pressure, a portable slit lamp and a fixed one, several direct and an indirect ophthalmoscope, an electroretinograph and an operating room equipped with an operative microscope and microsurgery surgical equipment to develop ophthalmology at the highest level.
