Ophthalmology Services

To Make an Ophthalmology Appointment

All patients of the Angell Ophthalmology Service are seen by appointment. To schedule an appointment, please call the Angell Ophthalmology Service's direct phone line at 617-541-5095. To see a list of the Ophthalmology appointment hours, including Saturday appointments, please visit www.angell.org/hours.

Same- or next-day emergency appointments with an ophthalmologist are often available, and our emergency & critical care service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, through which emergency consultations with an ophthalmologist can be facilitated. If your pet is experiencing an emergency outside of regular business hours, please call our main hospital number at 617-522-7282.

During your pet's appointment with the Angell Ophthalmology Service, we will need to ask you questions about your pet's medical history to provide you and your pet with an accurate diagnosis. It is very helpful for you to bring any medications that your pet has been prescribed, and also your pet's previous medical records, or have your regular veterinarian fax them to us at 617-989-1647.

We will also discuss the options available for diagnosing and treating your pet. For all of these reasons, it is extremely helpful for the primary care-giver of a pet either be present at the appointment.

Please arrive 5-10 minutes early for your appointment, to allow time to check in and fill out any necessary hospital paperwork.
