Tonometry in Longmont CO
We must identify and address glaucoma or any other issues with intraocular pressure (pressure within the eye) as soon as possible to preserve your pet’s vision. We can quickly and safely check your pet’s eyes for excessive pressure. The tonometer equipment is used for the test, which is painless and doesn’t call for sedation.
Glaucoma can result in irreversible vision loss or perhaps blindness if it is not treated quickly (within hours to days). This test should be conducted on pets who have had ocular damage. Additionally, we advise breeds predisposed to glaucoma to visit us for routine readings so we can track eye pressure and start treating any issues before they worsen. To find out if your pet has a higher than average risk of developing glaucoma, call us now.
