Welcome to our Practice: Where clients and patients are treated like friends and family

Our team is dedicated to providing the highest level of care, and we take the time to get to know each and every one of our patients so that we can tailor our services to meet your individual needs.


Flashbacks of having your own eyes checked-the bright lights, blurred vision, and the dreaded “puff of air test” may come to mind. If thoughts like these make you want to run for the hills, let the staff at Ocean Veterinary Ophthalmology take away the fear factor! Our practice is devoted exclusively to the medical and surgical treatment of animal eye diseases and injuries. Our team is committed to helping you and your pet by providing answers and prompt treatment of your pet’s ocular disease in a compassionate and caring environment.

The good news is that many eye diseases in dogs and cats are treatable! Dr. Michelle Samuel, our board-certified veterinary ophthalmologist, is dedicated to improving or maintaining your pet’s eye health, vision, and comfort. She is especially passionate about restoring vision through cataract surgery using the Stellaris Elite system. This cataract unit has advanced technology to enhance stability of the eye and improve efficiency during cataract removal making surgery that much more successful.

We believe in quality care and medicine and will guide you through every step of process. This includes explaining and helping you understand your pet’s eye disease and possible treatment options. Options may be medical, surgical, or both. Together, we’ll outline the most appropriate treatment plan customized for you and your pet’s needs. Dr. Samuel and her staff also leave plenty of time for you to ask any questions because we understand that your pet having any health problems can be overwhelming and scary. We are always available by phone or email when questions arise. We try our best to schedule your pet’s appointment as soon as possible. A majority of the time, we even have availability to see your pet same day if necessary.

We are here for you and your pet!
