Assisting pet owners and veterinarians everywhere

Providing gold standard of care for all your veterinary ophthalmic needs.


COVID-19 – Updated November 4th 2020
Following advice from the BVA, Eye Vet remains open during the second lockdown beginning 5/11/20.

– All appointments will be prioritised on a case by case basis due to a backlog of current new referrals. Urgent and emergency cases will be given priority. Non-urgent referrals will be offered the next routine appointment, which we regret may not be within the time frame requested.
– If you have an emergency case, please contact us directly.
– Please ensure your client has all the up to date information about how their visit to Eye Vet will be affected by Covid-19 which is available to click here.
– Case advise is still available via the online form.

If your client is attending Eye Vet for an appointment, please ensure that they have accessed and read all the information on our website regarding the protocols in place for their visit. These protocols must be adhered to during their time at the surgery.

Eye vet ophthalmologists have undertaken further ophthalmic qualifications in addition to their RCVS veterinary qualifications with a team of highly dedicated and qualified ophthalmic nurses and an on-site anaesthetist. Together, we take great pride in our work and provide gold standard of care to pets in the North West.

What do we do?

Ophthalmic knowledge and expertise are at the forefront of our service and care. Our team consists of a professional team of ophthalmologists, anaesthetists, nurses and administration staff and together we pride ourselves on the care we give. We have back up support from other disciplines at Northwest Veterinary Specialists and Liverpool Small Animal Teaching Hospital, which are both a short distance away. We also work closely with the animals (and their keepers) at Chester Zoo to provide ophthalmic care.
