Information on different departments at SNU VMTH and introduction for the medical staff will be provided here.

At SNU VMTH, we provide specialized ophthalmology consultation and operation for specific eye diseases. We have detailed equipments for the accurate diagnosis of eye diseases, and provide procedures and treatments for various eye diseases caused by congenital or acquired conditions.
If necessary, we will seek out the most suitable treatment option for patients through cooperation with other departments.
We are striving to improve diagnostic and surgical techniques for ophthalmic diseases through continuous research.


A cataract is a disease in which the lens that lets through and refracts light has white turbidity due to various causes. If the entire eye lens turns white, the light can no longer pass through and vision is lost.
For these cataracts, considering the best option for the inflicted animal, we can restore the patient‘s vision through surgical correction and insertion of an artificial intraocular lens.
  • Mature cataracts
  • After cataract surgery


Glaucoma is a disease that causes severe pain and loss of vision because the pressure in the eye rises unregulated. Glaucoma can be caused by congenital or acquired conditions, and it is a disease that requires timely treatment.
At SNU VMTH, we strive to restore the patient‘s vision and alleviate their pain by using precise equipments for the diagnosis of glaucoma and providing the appropriate treatments and surgical procedures for each patient.
  • Assessment using ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM)
  • After Gonioimplantation surgery


The cornea is located at the outermost part of the eye and serves as a transparent window. It can be prone to corneal ulcers or keratitis due to various causes. At our hospital, the causes of keratitis are precisely diagnosed, then the appropriate correction for the causes and treatments for corneal opacity will be provided.
Various conjunctival flap and eyelid suture techniques are used for the appropriate treatment of corneal ulcers. Corneal edema is treated by corneal correction through corneal blood vessels when the edema is due to corneal endothelial degeneration.
  • Corneal ulcer
  • Infectious corneal ulcer


Retina is the part of the eye that contains the most important visual cells that shape our vision. The retina may be damaged by various causes, and may also lead to vision loss. At SNU VMTH ophthalmology department, we use various equipments to diagnose retinal diseases, and our team strives to restore the patient‘s vision through proper treatments.
In particular, we could provide retinopexy surgery for patients whose vision has been lost due to retinal detachment.
  • Corneal ulcer
  • Infectious corneal ulcer

Eyelid and other diseases

In the case of eyelid diseases such as eyelid tumors or eyelid dysplasia, eyelid plastic surgery is performed not only to take care of the cause of disease but also for the patient‘s quality of life. Tear staining syndrome where the eye becomes festered with excessive tears and surronding hair turns red, treatment is provided through medial canthoplasty. Eyelashes will be removed to lessen the irritation to the eye and alleviate the excessive tear flow.
Additionally, we perform surgical correction for emergencies such as protrusion of the eyeball (proptosis) and corneal perforation caused by accidents.
  • Eyelid tumors
  • Protrusion of the eyeball (proptosis)
