A veterinary ophthalmologist is a veterinarian who exclusively treats eye disorders in animals. To become a veterinary ophthalmologist, a person must graduate from veterinary school, practice as a full-time clinical veterinarian for 12 months, and complete a 3-year or longer residency training program in veterinary ophthalmology. The applicant then is permitted to take the ABVO certifying examination. Dr. Badanes is actively seeking board certification and has been approved to sit for the certifying exam in 2022.

At Lancaster Veterinary Specialties, we offer ophthalmologic medical services for dogs and cats. With a state-of-the-art facility and experienced staff, it is our goal to provide a comfortable and safe environment for our patients and their families. Dr. Badanes provides compassionate, individualized care to improve the quality of life for you and your pet while working closely with your family veterinarian.
