Ophthalmology referrals are available at Brentknoll Veterinary Centre with visiting Veterinary Opthalmologist Jeremy Wills BVSc CertVOphthalmology MRCVS.
Jeremy is based at the practice on Monday mornings, but will see emergency cases as necessary.
Jeremy qualified from the University of Bristol Vet School in 1997. Ophthalmology became a particular interest of his and whilst working in small animal practice he found himself drawn to this particular discipline.
In 2005 he was awarded the Certificate in Veterinary Ophthalmology by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons and he’s been seeing referred eye cases ever since.
In February 2007, he set up Veterinary Eye Referrals, allowing him to offer high quality medical and surgical eye care for pets.
Facilities/equipment Jeremy uses include slit lamp biomicroscopy, indirect ophthalmology, applanation tonometry, gonioscopy, ocular ultrasonography, microsurgery (operating microscope), electrolysis, ERG (electroretinography), ophthalmic photography (including fundus photography) as well as the usual diagnostic stains and tear tests.
