The Animal Eye Centre can help with all types of Ophthalmic referrals in the North East of England from veterinary practices through out Durham, Northumberland and Tyne & Wear.

The Animal Eye Centre was setup in 2000 by John Errington to concentrate solely on ophthalmology and in 2018 the Animal Eye Centre moved to Alnorthumbria Veterinary Practice in Morpeth.

Eye examinations are carried out using direct and indirect ophthalmoscopy, slit lamp biomicroscopy, gonioscopy and tonometry.


We perform cataract surgery using a new Alcon Accurus cataract system which is capable of emulsifying solid cataracts, allowing removal from the eye through a small corneal incision thus restoring sight. Intra ocular lenses are fitted where possible to maximise vision. We also provide medical and surgical treatment of glaucoma, corneal diseases, eyelid abnormalities and dry eye

If you would like to arrange an appointment for the referral from your veterinary surgery then please contact us.
