Ophthalmology referrals in Milton Keynes

Ophthalmology refers to medical conditions affecting the eyes, eyelids, cornea, lens and retina. Milton Keynes Veterinary Group is able to offer diagnosis and treatment for complex eye conditions at our Walnut Tree, Stoke Road and Stony Stratford surgeries.

A variety of equipment is required to fully assess the eye. We have invested in advanced ophthalmological equipment including a Tonopen (to measure intra-ocular pressure), a Slit Lamp (used to assess the cornea and look inside the eye), as well as an operating microscope (used during surgery of the eye and eyelid where detailed vision is essential).

As a result, we regularly take on referral cases for eye conditions and ophthalmological issues in the Milton Keynes area.

If your pet is diagnosed with an ophthalmological problem, we may refer you to our own veterinary surgeon Philip Hanlon. Director and Veterinary Surgeon Philip Hanlon has a keen interest in ophthalmology and has gained a wealth of knowledge gained over his time with us. Philip also works alongside our Veterinary Surgeon Matt Lloyd, who gained his BSAVA Post Graduate Certificate in Small Animal Ophthalmology in 2022.
