We would like to take the time to send a Thank You out to our clients and patients!

We know it has been a trying time for all of us during the recent Covid restrictions. We know the waiting in your vehicle and wondering what is going on inside can drive the most patient person to crazy!

Please know that we are loving up on your dogs and kitties while they get their eyes examined and surgeries completed.

We would LOVE to open our doors and go back to normal as soon as possible. However, we are the ONLY Ophthalmologist open and seeing patients from Albany to Buffalo and most of Pennsylvania.

If one of us becomes sick, that would close the Hospital for 2 weeks. That is 2 weeks without meds, without treatments and without emergency surgeries.

With that being said, we DO WANT TO THANK YOU for your continued patience and understanding. We are truly doing our best to stay open and continue servicing all the animals in need.

We will continue "curbside" protocols until further notice. Please have a cell phone available and CALL US from the parking lot when you arrive. We will check you in over the phone. When we have a room available, cleaned and disinfected we will have you bring your pet into the vestibule.

Place the carrier on the floor, or if a leashed pet, attach the leash to the hook on the wall. As soon as you step out, one of our technicians will step in to get your pet.

Wait in the parking lot, the Doctor will call you shortly when the exam is completed. She will go over everything with you on the phone, as well as, give you a written hand out explaining everything.

A technician will complete your visit by going over medications and any questions you may have and cash you out. They will inform you to head back up to the vestibule, wait for them to step out, and you can step in and retrieve you pet and discharge instructions.

Please know that our schedule is FULL from now until February 2021 and continues to push out. If you cannot make your appointment please call us within 24 hours notice, so we may get another client in to take your place.

Animal Eye Care looks forward to brighter days ahead and we appreciate your continued support and understanding.

Stay Healthy Everyone!

As the New York State moves toward "reopening" businesses, Animal Eye Care wanted to advise their clients of the protocols we will be continuing to follow as we move into June.

Contrary to what local news channels have broadcast, we will not be allowing clients into the building for the month of June. This decision will be made by each practice and business owner. This will give us time to put safety protocols in place to protect both the staff and their clientele as we continue to open up.

Like many small animal hospitals, our exam rooms are extremely small and will not allow the proper social distancing during an exam. We are in the process of putting measures in place to hopefully allow 1 client in the room once we open fully. But this will take time.

We will continue the "curb-side" service as previously stated in other posts. Please call us from your car when you arrive, a Technician will speak with you on the phone about the status of your pet, phone number to reach you, payment method and wait times. When the technician states its OK to bring your pet in, you will bring your pet into the vestibule, attach his/her leash to the hook attached to the wall, (a technician/assistant will be waiting on the other side of the door), once you step out, they will step in and retrieve your pet for their exam.
WAIT IN YOUR CAR, DO NOT LEAVE.

The doctor will call you and advise you of what they found on exam. Once the doctor is done speaking with you a technician will speak with you about your pet's medications and next appointment (if needed) and settle the bill.

We will repeat the process of bringing your pet to you in the vestibule, we step in with your pet and appointment information, once we step out, you step in and get your pet.

For the month of June we will resume normal business hours EXCLUDING Friday appointments. Meaning, existing appointments scheduled for June SHOULD stay scheduled, except on Fridays. We will not be having appointments scheduled that day, however we will be open for medication pick-up and phone calls until noon.

We know this is a stressful time for everyone, please be patient. Please be nice. Please know we are doing our best to stay open and safe for all involved.

Thank you for your understanding.
The Doctors and Staff of Animal Eye Care of W.N.Y.

For those worries about their pets.

Considering this information in total, infectious disease experts and multiple international and domestic human and animal health organizations agree there is no evidence at this point to indicate that pets become ill with COVID-19 or that they can spread COVID-19 to other animals, including people.

A new human coronavirus that emerged from China has put public health officials on high alert. Here’s the information veterinarians need, both to answer questions and to address potential medical shortage issues.

Dooley is resting comfortably after his cataract surgery with his toy. He’s also enjoying his time with his parents staying at home with him but not liking getting drops all day long. I guess that’s the only downside to being visual again

03/15/2020

Amid all of the concern with the current virus situation, Animal Eye Care will still resume normal business hours.

We respectfully ask that when you arrive for your appointment call us to let us know you have arrived and wait in your car until the technician calls you in. We are adhering to strict guidelines to reduce the risk of spreading the virus around Animal Eye Care by allowing minimal clientele in at once and following social distancing guidelines.

If you need to pick up medications please call 716-608-7700 and we will let you know when it is appropriate to come in.

We are asking any client who may be sick, please call the office and we will be happy to reschedule your appointment.

We are also asking any client who has recently traveled to an infected area or has been in contact with someone who has, to reschedule their appointment to a later date as well.

Medications for you pets are still available and can be mailed to your home to limit any additional contact.

As always, we will do our best to continue care of your pet to the best of our ability while keeping our staff and clientele as safe as possible.

Stay healthy!

From Lynn Petraska: "Its a descemetocele. The basement membrane of the cornea is hydrophobic and will not become edematous like the surrounding corneal stroma. So if you have an ulcer with a clear, fluorescein negative area.... it’s DEEP and about to perforate.
It can start out as a superficial ulcer and become deeper quickly causing edema, pain, hypopyon...the body will try to heal itself with neovascularization infiltrating the cornea. But vessels grow slowly, an mm a day or so. Usually w/o sx they are on abx drops and serum q 2 hours with this severity."
