OFA Eye Certification exams (previously “CERF” exams) are screening examinations performed by board certified veterinary ophthalmologists in order to identify changes within the eye(s) suggesting the presence of one or more of these diseases. The exam is performed following pupillary dilation and consists of indirect ophthalmoscopy & slit lamp biomicroscopy. After the examination the ophthalmologist will complete the OFA Companion Animal Eye Registry (CAER) form and indicate any specific disease(s) found. The forms are in triplicate – one copy is for the vet’s records, one is for the owner, and one is for the OFA’s Clinical Database. Certification is valid for 12 months from the date of the eye exam. Annual re-examination is recommended.To schedule an OFA examination for one or more pets, please call reception at VOC.
