What is a Diplomate of the ACVO (veterinary ophthalmologist)?

The ACVO/Merial National Service Dog Eye Exam event is a philanthropic effort generously provided to the public by the board certified Diplomates of the American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists who donate their time, staff and services to provide free screening ocular exams to qualified Service Animals.

This program would not be successful without the generosity of our Diplomates and the financial support of our namesake sponsor, Merial, and other valuable sponsors.

Over 10,500 Service Animals have received these free screening exams over the past four years. Please participate, support our ophthalmologists and sponsors to ensure this program continues in 2012 and beyond.

- Stacee Daniel, ACVO Executive Director

1) …to preserve the sight of those who serve us all selflessly…
2) …to strengthen referral relationships with general practice veterinarians…
3) …to gather data relative to work performance for future work recommendations…
4) …to benefit those who rely on Service Animals; individuals and society…

Sponsors help us pay for the infrastructure to promote and execute this event. Without their generous support, it could not exist from year to year. Please support our 2012 sponsors and let them know you appreciate them. Email notes of encouragement to servicedog@acvo.org . Thank you Merial, OcuGlo-RX, Aventix, Eye Care for Animals, Optigen and WelchAllyn!
