Ophthalmology Clinic

The Ophthalmology service at the NCSU Equine Heath Center at Southern Pines provides specialty ophthalmic services (i.e., eye diseases) for large and small animals referred by general veterinary practitioners. The entire staff of the Ophthalmology service helps provide a full range of diagnostic, therapeutic and surgical services.  However, procedures requiring general anesthesia will be performed at the Veterinary Health Complex in Raleigh.

The Ophthalmology Service at NC State maintains a satellite clinic at the Equine Health Center at Southern Pines (EHC-SP). The main clinic is located at the NCSU College of Veterinary Medicine in Raleigh.

Equine Eye Registry Foundation

The Ophthalmology Clinic offers Equine Eye Registration. The purpose of this registration is to eliminate heritable eye disease in purebred horses through registration, research and education. Secondly, this examination provides early detection of eye and vision problems in performance and sport horses. This examination takes about 30 minutes, is inexpensive, and is performed by an ophthalmologist. Please visit the Equine Eye Registration Foundation website or call the Equine Ophthalmology Service at (919)513-6659 for more information.
