A specialty practice is designed to be an extension of the services provided by your veterinarian. General practitioners in the Dallas/Ft. Worth metroplex and surrounding area manage many eye problems on their own, however, a patient is referred when the veterinarian believes that the pet has a complicated, severe or chronic eye problem and would benefit from the advanced training of a board-certified ophthalmologist.
Dr. Stephanie L. Beaumont is board-certified by the American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists (ACVO). A board-certified veterinary ophthalmologist is a licensed veterinarian that has continued his/her education by serving a 1 year internship followed by a 3 year residency in a teaching program that has been approved by the AVCO. After successful completion of the residency, the candidate must pass a rigorous credentials process and board exam. Once this is accomplished, the veterinarian becomes a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists and is then considered a specialist, or expert, in the field of veterinary ophthalmology.
A board-certified veterinary ophthalmologist specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the eyes and associated structures. They use highly specialized equipment for examination and surgery of the eyes. Veterinary specialty services are meant to supplement, not replace, your pet's primary healthcare provided by your veterinarian.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
They were amazing!
They were amazing! I called when my vet told me to make an appointment for my dog for a month out- I explained what was happening (my dog had something in his eye and the vet wasn’t sure what to do other than follow up every couple of weeks)- the woman who answered the phone at Animal Eye Specialists listened and said that based on what I was explaining she felt the dog should come in right away and that they had an appointment that very afternoon. They told me what the fees would be ahead of time so there wouldn’t be any surprises. The office was easy to find and once we were seen, the doctor and technician were super knowledgeable and kind to my dog and me. They figured out what was wrong and immediately addressed it. The staff gave clear instructions for the medications for the dog including a checklist for each day I had to give medication. I hope that I won’t have to bring my dog back to see them, but, I would only trust them with my dogs eyes.
They saved my Shih Tzu's eye!
Dr. Beaumont and the staff at Animal Eye Specialists are incredible!! They saved my Shih Tzu's eye. They were extremely friendly, helpful and patient with all of my questions and concerns. Highly recommend!!
Empathy & Support
Dr. Beaumont took time to listen to my concerns and questions and her responses were always carefully thought out, well articulated and informative. I felt like everyone in the office was sensitive to my concerns about surgery and how heavily the decision was weighing on me. I never felt pressured. What I felt from Dr. Beaumont and her staff was empathy and support for whatever decision I made. And that helped me make a calm, rational, and loving decision for my pet. I really can’t express how much I appreciate the expert counsel and support I received and how thankful I am to have such skilled and caring people nearby.
