Ophthalmology Clinic at Severn Vets

The Ophthalmology service is run by Jeremy Wills BVSc CertVOphthalmology MRCVS. Jeremy offers regular clinics at our Tybridge House practice on Mondays and Fridays, but will arrange to see emergency cases as necessary.

Jeremy qualified from the University of Bristol in 1997. In 2005 he was awarded the Certificate in Veterinary Ophthalmology by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons. He has been seeing eye cases referred by other vets since 2005. In 2007 he established Veterinary Eye Referrals in order to deliver a high quality medical and surgical eye care service for pets.

Facilities include slit lamp biomicroscopy, indirect ophthalmology, applanation tonometry, gonioscopy, ocular ultrasonography, microsurgery, ophthalmic photography (including fundus photography) as well as the usual diagnostic stains and tear tests.
