Usually, once a week I have a patient come in for an eye exam. Although, there are veterinary ophthalmologists, many eye concerns for pets can easily be handled by their primary vet.
The first thing that I Iook for is discharge from the eye. Is there any? Which eye, or both? Liquid tearing or more mucous? Color? Are the eyes the same size? Pupils the same size? Dilated puppy or constricted? Is there reddening of the sclera, (the white portion above the iris)? Is the eye squinting?
