Iris Atrophy

I qualified from Glasgow Vet School in 1997, and after a number of years in clinical veterinary work, decided that I didn’t know enough about the eye cases I was seeing, and so decided to improve my knowledge!

After several years of study and further work inthis area, I was awarded my General Practitioner certificare in 2011 by Improve International and the European School of Postgraduate Veterinary Studies, and subsequently was awarded the Post Graduate Certificate in Small Animal Ophthalmology in 2016. 

Ophthovet has been formed to allow practices in Central Scotland to call on the services of an experienced Ophthalmologist to come to your clinic, and see your clients avoiding the need for referral in many cases. I will be working to develop regular clinics in the host practices, and provide your clients with a first class service, while retaining a proportion of the income generated for your business.

Please get in touch for further details or for a chat about I can help you.
