A Positive Vision For Your Four-Footed Family Member
“I feel very humbled, healing a beloved pet’s eyes — and, in turn, opening up the whole family’s eyes to healthy vision-care habits, especially during May, NATIONAL PET MONTH.” –Dr. Andrew Greller
May is National Pet Month, with the goal of promoting responsible pet ownership. Accordingly, Dr. Andrew Greller, a veterinary Ophthalmologist based here in San Antonio, Texas, offers the following “6 Tips for Spot’s Healthy Eye Care” to local pet owners.
“As a veterinary eye specialist, I have seen every crazy thing happen to a dog’s and cat’s eyes,” he says, adding that eye problems are the third most likely cause for a pet’s visit to the veterinarian, besides a wellness visit.

Greller treated about 2,000 patients locally for sight-related ailments in 2012. “The most common conditions I see are dry eye, corneal ulcers, cataracts, and glaucoma,” he notes.
