Welcome to OphthoVet Consulting

Let’s work together to help your patients keep their vision and maintain comfort! Now offering consultation services outside of South Carolina.

Don’t get me wrong; there is no substitute for referral to an ophthalmologist for complicated eye cases, but I understand that sometimes referral may not be an option for your clients. Through OphthoVet Consulting, I aim to help bridge the gap between general practice and ophthalmology specialty practice by providing relevant, economical, and practical solutions.

A Note from Dr. Kristin Fischer

Hi, I’m Kristin, and I can’t wait to help you with your cases!

I am passionate about helping others, and I love teaching. I am really, really into ophthalmology and LOVE what I do!

I came up with the idea of OphthoVet Consulting after talking to fellow veterinarians from across the country at a recent conference where I lectured. I learned that many feel uncomfortable treating eyes, and several expressed difficulty referring cases due to geographical or financial limitations. Many ophthalmology practices are currently booked out weeks in advance for appointments, and some cases simply cannot wait!

I began wondering how I could help people outside of my current area learn to confidently manage ophthalmology cases.

I hope each case we work on together is an opportunity for practical, case-based continuing education, resulting in better outcomes for the patients in your hospital.
