Horses' eyes are incredibly delicate and this, combined with the horse's dependence on the sense of sight, means that any sign of a potential eye problem should be treated immediately.
The eyes are critical to the health, performance and well-being of your horse. Eye injuries can be devastating to a horse if they're not treated appropriately and with urgency.
Here at Countryside, we offer medical and surgical treatment options along with the latest drug therapies. Any damage to the horse's eye is considered an emergency.
If your horse is experiencing any eye or vision problems, call us immediately at (770) 788-7387.
If your horse is excessively rubbing their eye against objects, they may be trying to relieve pain or irritation. This rubbing can easily increase trauma to your horse's eye and quickly create a serious problem.
Administering treatment for eye trauma can be challenging and painful. Management of serious eye problems often requires multiple treatments per day and may extend for several weeks.
