Ophthalmology Referrals

Dr. Ida Gilbert
BVSc CertVOphthal MRCVS
RCVS Advanced Practitioner
In Veterinary Ophthalmology

I graduated from Bristol University in 1995, but I am
originally from Norway. After graduating, I worked for two
years in mixed practice, before pursuing my interest in
ophthalmology. I achieved the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons’ Certificate in Veterinary
Ophthalmology in 2001. I have served 5 terms on the Committee of the British
Association of Veterinary Ophthalmologists (BrAVO) since 2009 including 1 terms
as Chairperson. I am currently available to see patients on Friday’s at Macqueens.
In my spare time, I enjoy being outdoors, hiking with my two Hungarian Vizslas,
gardening, playing tennis, skiing and spending time with my family.
