What is an eye vet?

An eye vet is a veterinarian who has undergone further training to work only in the field of ophthalmology. To become a specialist you need to pass exams held by the Australian & New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists. A veterinarian in a formal training program to be a specialist is called a Resident. At Animal Eye Care we have two specialists (Robin and Matt), and two Residents (Helen and Joyce).
