One of the UK’s most respected veterinary eye clinics has opened a new state-of-the-art facility in Newton Mearns, its first site in Scotland. 

Linnaeus-owned Veterinary Vision’s dedicated ophthalmology service in Glasgow is complete with three consulting rooms and cutting-edge theatre, together with a dedicated cattery and kennels. 

The site has been fully kitted out with new ophthalmic equipment, while patients will receive expert care from its veterinary nurses and team, which includes practice manager Lisa Holme, senior vet and advanced practitioner in veterinary ophthalmology Richard McCallum and ophthalmologist Rebecca Jeffery, who joins from Glasgow University. 

Lisa said: “Veterinary Vision is delighted to open the doors to our Newton Mearns clinic, our very first site in Scotland. 

“We have made sure our specially designed referral-only ophthalmology clinic offers the very latest equipment, backed up by expertise from our dedicated team. 

“All our patients receive the best treatment possible and our ophthalmologists routinely perform complex extraocular and intraocular microsurgical procedures, supported by a team of passionate veterinary nurses.” 

Veterinary Vision accepts referrals for all types of medical and surgical ocular disease including cataract surgery with artificial lens implantation, retinal detachment surgery, lens luxation surgery, corneal surgery and endolaser surgery for glaucoma.  

Lisa added: “Our first patients to Newton Mearns are now benefiting from our expertise and we look forward to helping many more animals with eye conditions.” 

Veterinary Vision, which also has three clinics in the north of England, is equipped for all types of ocular surgery with 11 veterinary ophthalmologists offering a vast range of experience and knowledge in small animal, and equine eye conditions.
