Types of Animal Eyelid Surgeries We Offer
There are a number of conditions in animals that may require blepharoplasty. Our team of highly skilled, board certified veterinary ophthalmologists is capable of conducting a variety of blepharoplastic procedures to address these issues.
Some of the pet eyelid surgeries we offer include:
- Ectropion (“rolled out” eyelids) correction
- Entropion (“rolled in” eyelids) correction
- Removal of eyelashes arising from wrongly located follicles (distichiae and ectopic cilia)
- Removal of eyelid masses and tumors
In every case, we personalize our surgical and medical treatments to the specific needs of the patient, and we strive to make these procedures accessible to all by offering affordable pricing.
How to Tell If Your Pet Needs Blepharoplasty
Because our pets cannot tell us when something is wrong, it can be difficult to tell if an eye or eyelid issue is something minor or something more serious.
There are a few signs you can look out for that may indicate your pet might need eyelid surgery. These include:
- Excessive or discolored discharge from the eye
- Keeping the eye partially or fully closed
- Ocular swelling
- Redness of the eye
- Signs of ulceration
- Unusual pigmentation and/or cloudiness
- Visible growths
Eyelid conditions can be very painful, and it may be relatively obvious that your pet is experiencing pain or discomfort. If you believe your cat, dog, or other pet may need eye or eyelid treatment and care, contact Animal Eye Care. We can answer your questions and discuss your pet’s best medical options.
