About Dr. Todd Hammond and Eye Clinic Veterinary

Our founder and veterinarian, Dr. Todd Hammond, specializes in animal eye care and is a fully licensed DVM, MS, DACVO. He earned his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine in 1974 at Colorado State University, long before starting Eye Clinic Veterinary in Wheat Ridge, Colorado. After completing a residency, he was awarded a master's degree in comparative ophthalmology in 1984. In 1985, he became a board-certified veterinary ophthalmologist. He also attended the University of Texas medical school and Herman Eye Center in Houston, Texas for further comparative ophthalmology training. Dr. Hammond was an affiliate faculty member in clinical sciences at CSU from 1982-1987. In addition, he has presented at national and local meetings and has published articles and book chapters. For several years, Dr. Hammond traveled a circuit to the western slope of Colorado to perform low cost eye clinics to rural communities.  Currently, Dr. Hammond is limiting his practice to providing Equine veterinary ophthalmology services (mainly horses).  

With more than 48 years of experience, our clinic strives to provide eye care services through state-of-the-art medicine and surgical procedures for the Rocky Mountain region. Fully licensed to practice in both Colorado and Wyoming, we abide by the standards of the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) and the American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP).  Beginning in 2009, Eye Clinic Veterinary received an award of excellence from the AAHA for meeting all clinical standards.  We continue to abide by these high clinical standards.
