VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. - Animal Vision Center of Virginia is offering free animal eye screening exams now through May 31, for pets of first responders and healthcare workers in Hampton Roads.

“We know this community is giving up time with their loved ones and their pets to do their job. We wanted to make at least one thing a little easier,” said Dr. Heather Brookshire, who owns and operates the Virginia Beach practice. “A screening doesn’t take a lot of time, and it’s extremely helpful if you’ve seen noticeable changes in your pet’s eyesight. The quicker we can determine the issue and begin ocular care, the longer they can enjoy a long, healthy life.”

First responders and healthcare workers should call (757)-749-4838 to schedule the free screening.

Animal Vision Center of Virginia offers drive-up telehealth services, allowing pet owners to participate in appointments through live video or voice telemedicine phone conferencing from their car.

The center is located at 521 Old Great Neck Road, Suite 2.
