Northern Florida’s preferred choice for veterinary ophthalmology services

At VEI Gainesville, expert veterinary ophthalmologists Drs. Brendan G. Mangan and William M. Berkowski, Jr., and their entire highly qualified, compassionate team treat a wide range of eye conditions in dogs and cats, including dry-eye, corneal ulcers, cataracts, glaucoma, and retinal disease. We also provide advanced ophthalmic care for horses and other animals on an appointment basis.

Clear and Comfortable Vision in a Kind, Compassionate Way

We take the time to listen to your concerns, thoroughly examine your pet, and develop a personalized treatment plan to address your pet’s specific eye care needs. Recognizing the importance of providing comprehensive, well-coordinated care, we also work closely with your family veterinarian and other veterinary specialists. Together, we make sure your pet’s vision is clear and comfortable, for the best quality of life.
