Ophthalmology is particularly important in equine medicine because disorders with different causes can have the same or similar symptoms. Following one or repeated occurrences, even seemingly harmless ailments can significantly compromise the eyesight of a horse.


The especially darkened examination room fitted with dimmer switches as well as the available equipment ensure the ideal conditions for examination.


The first step for successful treatment is the timely and professional administering of eye medicines. We guarantee this with our medically trained staff, who support your horse round the clock.
