Animal Eye Services was founded in a collaboration between Drs Richard Smith and Mike Bernays in 1999. Dr Smith was a long serving Superintendent of the Small Animal Clinic at the University of Queensland where he conducted an ophthalmology practice from the mid 1980s until his gradual move into private practice at Kessels Rd Veterinary Hospital in the early 1990s.
Dr. Bernays commenced ophthalmology fellowship training with Dr. Smith in 1996 and after gaining his specialist qualification the partnership was established. Dr Smith retired from Animal Eye Services in December 2005.
In March 2008 we moved from Kessels Road to our current address where we are now co-located with Veterinary Specialist Services in Underwood.
