The Comparative Ophthalmology Service at the MSU Veterinary Medical Center is dedicated to research, education, and clinical practice for large, small, domestic, wild, and zoo animals.

Our Hospital service is run by three board-certified clinicians and supported by our three residents and licensed veterinary technician. Also part of the team are our students on rotation who collaborate with us to offer the best in care and highest quality veterinary medical education. Our team uses the most advanced equipment to diagnose and treat regular, unique, and emergency eye conditions. Additionally, we collaborate with other Hospital services to offer the best in surgical and other therapeutic solutions.

Our faculty conducts ground-breaking research on inherited retinal and glaucoma diseases. As one of the leading veterinary ophthalmologic research groups on the continent, our researchers explore the causes of inherited blinding diseases and are developing genetic and other novel therapies to treat these conditions. With values that align with the American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists, our board-certified ophthalmologists provide advanced diagnostic, therapeutic, and surgical services to assess and treat a full range of eye diseases, conditions, and injuries.
