Due to demand, the UC Davis Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital now has an Equine Ophthalmology Service, headed by equine eye specialist Mary Lassaline, DVM, PhD, MA, DACVO.

The new Equine Ophthalmology Service provides advanced diagnostics, as well as routine, complex and emergency medical and surgical care to horses with a variety of ocular disorders, including corneal ulcers, corneal and eyelid cancer, equine recurrent uveitis, cataracts, and glaucoma.

Dr. Lassaline earned her veterinary degree from Michigan State University, after which she completed a one-year internship at Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital in Lexington, Ky. Dr. Lassaline then completed a residency in veterinary ophthalmology at the University of Florida. Following two years in private practice, she spent the last eight years developing and leading the equine ophthalmology program as a faculty member at the University of Pennsylvania. Her research interests span the breadth of equine eye problems, with a particular focus on equine corneal disease.
