Jay Harrington DVM

Diplomate ACVO

VERG Welomes our new Ophthalmologist


 Originally from a small town in Ohio, Jay attended The Ohio State University where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology and Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 2008. Following graduation, he completed a one-year rotating internship at North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine and then stayed for a three-year ophthalmology residency. During his residency, Jay published several journal articles on the subjects of cataracts and laser therapy for glaucoma and he was awarded a resident research award by the American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists. In 2012, Jay completed his residency and successfully passed his specialty board examination to earn his Diplomate status in ophthalmology.

Professionally, Jay is interested in all aspects of ophthalmology, especially cataract surgery, management of glaucoma, and ophthalmic manifestations of systemic disease. In his spare time he enjoys traveling, running, and spending time with his family and friends. While Jay is excited to have an apartment in Brooklyn, he maintains a house in North Carolina that he shares with a French Bulldog, two Jack Russell Terriers, and a one-eyed cat.
