Our goals are to provide your pet with life-long functional vision, provide comfort, and to treat our patients and clients with kind and compassionate care.

We will gather information from you and your family veterinarian on the development of your pet’s eye problem.

Based on this information and a complete ophthalmic examination, we will provide you with a clear understanding of your pet’s diagnosis as well as recommendations and estimates for treatment.

Once you decide how you would like to proceed, we will step you through the process of scheduling any additional tests or procedures. Your primary veterinarian will be informed as we gain clarity on your pet’s eye problem and as a treatment plan is determined.

Ophthalmology Service

Jana Korsch-Dismukes, DVM
Diplomate, American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists

Veterinary specialists, much like specialists in fields of human medicine, have devoted additional time to education and specialty training beyond the schooling required to practice general veterinary medicine.

This additional training for veterinary ophthalmologists includes a three-year residency in ophthalmology and extensive testing, both overseen by the American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists (ACVO).

With a completed residency and successful completion of ACVO testing, diplomate status is granted. Dr. Korsch-Dismukes’s investment in becoming a boarded ophthalmology specialist is an investment in providing the best care available for your family member.

“How does Dr. Korsch-Dismukes work with my primary veterinarian?”

The partnership and close collaboration between Dr. Korsch-Dismukes and your primary veterinarian ensures the best and most efficient care for your pet’s eye problem. We will remain in very close contact  with your primary veterinarian while your pet is in our core, and to ensure that recovery is going smoothly once patients are discharged from our services. We consider the primary veterinarian to be a key member of the core team while your pet is in our hands.
