Eye Vet





Client Information

Eye Vet referrals is a dedicated ophthalmology referral practice. We see cases from the North West England, Midlands and Wales.

Our ophthalmologists are veterinary surgeons who have all undertaken post -graduate training in ophthalmology. We also employ a team of specialist nurses, also trained in ophthalmology, to look after your pet.

We are fortunate also to have the support of a European and RCVS consultant in anaestheia Perrine Benmansour DipECVAA MRCVS. Perrine is head of the anaesthesia department at Eye Vet, and oversees all patient anaesthesia/sedation.

The clinic is fully equipped with the most up-to-date ophthalmic equipment, so that our vets can fully investigate ocular problems and offer the best treatment for your pet.

Fully equipped operating theatre with high magnification microscopes

If further specialist care is needed, we are fortunate to have a multi-disciplinary referral centre nearby, and also the Liverpool University Small Animal Teaching Hospital, who are able to investigate cases further if the disorder is not confined to the eye.

These combined enable Eye Vet to offer the highest standard of care for your pet.

Treatments offered include: Cataract surgery (phacoemulsification), eyelid surgeries, ocular trauma repair, electroretinography, laser surgery and electrocyclophotocoagulation

How do I get my pet referred?

Although we are a referral clinic, we require your pet to be referred to us via your own vet. This is so that the ophthalmologists and your own vet can work together as a team to provide the optimum care for your pet. We need details of your pet’s medical history in order to reach the most accurate diagnosis.

Your vet needs details of our diagnosis and treatment plan, in order that he or she can best carry out further treatments and continue care. We send written reports to this effect, to your vet regularly.

We therefore cannot make appointments from you directly.  Your pet must see your own vet before a referral can be made.

Once we receive the information from your vet, our customer support team will contact you to arrange an appointment.


We have separate dog and cat wards to help your pet remain stress free during his/her stay



If we, or your veterinary surgeon consider that your pet’s condition is an emergency, you will be contacted as soon as we receive the referral from your vet, or as soon as your vet contacts us.  You may be asked to come to the clinic immediately. It is therefore important that we have the correct contact details so we can contact you. In the case of emergencies, we ask for your cooperation in attending the clinic at the time of our request. This is in the best interest of your pet.

Our first consult fee is £185.06 for a routine appointment during surgery hours. This does not include emergency appointments. Consultation prices for emergency appointments will be given direct to the owner when the appointment is scheduled.

Out of hours consultations command a higher rate owing to call-out fees of veterinary nurses and ophthalmologists.


Emergency appointments during surgery hours may command a higher fee if our clinic is already fully booked, and emergency attention will cause us to overrun
