Veterinary Eye Center is OPEN for new patients with urgent and complex eye problems by referral only, and for established patients with ongoing care needs.  Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have reduced our business hours and we are open 4 days per week (instead of 5).

We are a locally owned and operated business in Austin, Texas that was founded in 2006.  Dr. Audrey Yu-Speight is a board-certified Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists and she h
as over 19 years of experience providing specialized animal eye care for all species except humans.

We're evolving our procedures with a new Client Portal and Online Pharmacy for Home Delivery, and electronic form submissions.  Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we using Telemedicine to communicate with clients at each appointment at the hospital and remotely.  We are also using new electronic invoicing for payment security. 

Please visit our COVID-19 page for updates on COVID-19 including our new hospital procedu
res and information about the impact on animals.  To reduce exposure during this period of active COVID-19 community spread, new patients are only being seen by referral from another veterinarian who has examined the patient for the eye problem.

 

We work closely with our clients, their pets and their referring veterinarians to manage their ocular problems.  We believe that communication and education are essential to our goals.  Our goals are to:

 

1)  Preserve vision
2)  Provide comfort
3)  Improve quality of life
