Animal Eye Center



Animal Eye Center has provided this website as a resource to both customers and the public. Many of your pet’s eye concerns can be researched within Common Eye Diseases. You may browse the list of scheduled Mobile Referral Clinics or get a map to one of our offices, and much more!

Our doctor will perform a complete animal eye care examination on your pet with the assistance of our nurses. This includes examining the eye with a head set, hand lens, panophthalmoscope and slit lamp to aid in magnification of different parts of the eye.

The purpose of the OFA Eye Certification Registry (ECR) is to provide breeders with information regarding canine eye diseases so that they may make informed breeding decisions in an effort to produce healthier dogs.

All of our offered surgeries can be performed here at the Animal Eye Center in Loveland, CO. Some of these surgeries are also available at our travel locations. Learn more about any of the animal eye care we offer and current availability.

Here at the Animal Eye Center we strive to provide the highest quality of medical and surgical animal eye care for your pet. We also enjoy educating not only our clients but also veterinarians about the further care of the animal and their vision needs. Our goal is to maintain a professional and courteous atmosphere with our clients at all times.

Both Dr. Steven Roberts & Dr. Trevor Arnold are board certified by the American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists (ACVO). Only Diplomates of the American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists® may conduct OFA exams. Additional requirements to be a member in good standing of the ACVO include payment of dues and adherence to the ACVO Code of Ethics. To become a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists (DACVO) you must meet the following criteria. After a person graduates from college (4 years) and then veterinary school (4 years), he/she usually completes a 1 year internship in small animal medicine and surgery. The person then serves a 3 year residency in ophthalmology at either a veterinary teaching hospital or at a boarded veterinary ophthalmologist's clinic under the supervision of ophthalmologists. Once the residency is completed the board certification process begins, first with a credentials package. If the credentials are accepted by the ABVO Exam Committee, the applicant is allowed to take the examination. The exam is a four-day process consisting of written, practical, and surgical parts. Finally, after passing all of the above criteria, the veterinarian is recognized as a "Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists®" or in short, board certified in veterinary ophthalmology. No one may use this title unless they have successfully completed all of these steps.

The spectrum of animals that have or can receive care include companion animals (dogs and cats), large animals (horses, llamas, cattle), exotic (zoo, reptiles) and pocket pets (ferrets, birds, small mammals). Most procedures are possible to perform on an out-patient basis, thus requiring minimal time in the hospital facility.
