Eye Surgery

The Animal Eye Center of NJ features board-certified veterinary ophthalmologists with years of training and experience in specialized eye surgery. We are fully equipped to handle even the most high risk patients with a board-certified anesthesiologist available through Animal Emergency & Referral Associates, AERA’s nearby 24/7, 365 emergency care and specialty hospital. Our advanced, state-of-the-art equipment will provide your pet with a quality procedure that mirrors what you might experience in a human hospital.  Surgical procedures that involve the eye(s) are typically performed on an outpatient basis and more often than not, your pet will be able to rejoin you at home the very same day. We do everything possible to minimize discomfort before, during and after a procedure. With pain medication and rest, your pet should be feeling much better in no time.
