What is a Veterinary Ophthalmologist?
A veterinary ophthalmologist is a veterinarian who has been recognized as a “Diplomate by the American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists” (www.acvo.org). Dr. Studer is the only board-certified veterinary ophthalmologist practicing full-time in the OKC metro area. In order to become board certified, a person must first graduate from veterinary school, practice full time as a clinical veterinarian for a minimum of 12 months (typically achieved through an internship), and then complete a 3-year residency training program in veterinary ophthalmology. The applicant is then permitted to take the ABVO certifying examination. This 4-day intense exam consists of multiple written and practical components. Upon completion of these criteria and a passing score on the certifying exam, a veterinarian is then recognized as a “Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists” and is board-certified in veterinary ophthalmology.
