About veterinary ophthalmology:
Veterinary ophthalmology is the study of the animal eye and its associated diseases. To become a veterinary ophthalmologist, a veterinarian is required to complete at least one year of internship, a three year accredited residency program, and exhaustive written and practical examinations admininstered by the American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists. Following this, the veterinarian becomes board certified in ophthalmology and is granted the title, Diplomate. This comprehensive and rigorous training program prepares the veterinarian to be an expert in the medical and surgical management of ophthalmic diseases of all animal species.
