Christine Heinrich

RCVS & European Specialist in Veterinary Ophthalmology

Christine graduated from Munich Veterinary School in 1995 and immediately moved to the UK where she received her training as an eye specialist at the Animal Health Trust. Christine holds both the RCVS and the ECVO diploma in Veterinary Ophthalmology and is an RCVS recognised specialist in her discipline. 

Christine loves clinical work and after many years of working in multi-disciplinary referral centres has taken over the dedicated eye referral service Eye Veterinary Clinic in 2015. Christine enjoys both medical and surgical aspects of her work and is keen to promote teaching of her speciality by lecturing widely to veterinary surgeons in the UK and abroad. Under Christine's guidance, EVC has become a training centre for the European College of Veterinary Ophthalmology. 

Christine loves her own (rather large!) four legged family and has encouraged the policy that staff dogs are welcome - with the introduction of dedicated staff dog accommodation. Caleb, the big dog in the picture above is one of Christine's dogs that comes to work every day and loves to chill in the doggy daycare centre with his friends!
