What is OFA Online?

What are the benefits?

Minimizes time and potential errors. Improves overall process efficiency for the owner, veterinarian, and OFA. Easily accessible digital records for everyone.


How do OFA Eye Certifications with Dr. Tolar work?

All OFA Eye Certification appointments or clinics are required to preregister and complete the OFA online sign up. Once this has been complete please call Bluegrass Veterinary Vision at 502-242-5504 and we are then able to schedule an appointment.

When you arrive for your appointment we will come out to you dilate your dogs eyes. If you have a Dalmatian, Australian Shepherd, or any merle colored breed we will do an examination prior to the dilation. The dilation takes approximately 30 minutes and can last up to 4-6 hours.

We will bring you into an examination room and your pet will be scanned for a microchip and the examination will be performed. If you have multiple dogs we will have you help shuttle dogs back and forth while Dr. Tolar is doing the examinations. You are responsible for making sure we are doing the examination on the correct dog.
