A sick horse is a big headache and an even bigger heartache. If your horse is unlucky enough to be afflicted by eye disease or injury, the prognosis can be daunting.

Fortunately, the NCSU Veterinary Hospital offers world-class, cutting-edge treatment. The service is open 24/7 every day of the year for emergency and critical care. The ophthalmology service sees routine appointments Mon., Tues. and Thurs., 9:30 AM to 3:30 PM.

The team checks on a patient in the stables.

Please see the Ophthalmology Service website for appointments, referrals and resources. There’s plenty of info for owners, from tips for taking eye photos using your smartphone, to what to bring to your appointment and answers to FAQs.

If your horse is suffering from an eye disease or injury, please get in touch with the service for more information on how they might be able to assist your case.
