Welcome to the only Veterinary Ophthalmology clinic in British Columbia. We are conveniently located just 5 minutes off the #1 Hwy, two blocks north of the Royal Columbian Hospital, in New Westminster. Our two board-certified Veterinary Ophthalmologists, Dr. Charlotte Keller and Dr. Christina King (Sandberg) have over 25 years of combined clinical experience and our dedicated, caring and knowledgeable staff have been with us for many years.
Western Canada Veterinary Eye Specialists is a specialty clinic for animals suffering from eye diseases or vision problems. We are strictly a referral clinic and our patients are referred to us by the general practitioner veterinarians throughout the province. For animals living further away, we travel to Vancouver Island and the Okanagan Valley to make ourselves and our specialty services more accessible.
The only animals that do not require a referral are the breeding dogs in need of a yearly screening exam (certification).
Although our clinic is focused on the examination and treatment of animal eyes we are not restricted in the range of animal species we work with. Dogs, cats and small pet animals are cared for at our clinic, horses are examined at locations in the Fraser Valley and wildlife or exotic animals are seen at other facilities and rescue centers.
We provide a wide range of services including extensive diagnostic testing, medical treatments, laser surgery, cataract operation and many more ophthalmic procedures.
Everyone on our team is committed to providing the highest quality of service to our patients, their owners and the referring veterinarians. Our goals are to book appointments in the timeliest manner possible, to offer a welcoming, caring and relaxed atmosphere, to take the time to listen, understand and educate and to practice and deliver excellence in ophthalmic care. We are dedicated to making a difference by showing respect and compassion, being attentive and communicating clearly.
Please feel free to get in contact with us.
