Dr. Anthony Alario received his B.S. degree in 2006 from Rutgers, The State University of NJ before attending Tufts Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine. After graduating in 2010, he remained at Tufts University to complete a one year rotating internship in small animal medicine and surgery followed by a three year residency in comparative ophthalmology. During his eight years at Tufts University, Dr. Alario published nine peer-reviewed articles in the field of veterinary ophthalmology, seven as a first author. During that time he has also given many lectures to veterinary students and veterinarians on the topic of veterinary ophthalmology. Much of Dr. Alario’s research is in the field of non-invasive imaging techniques of the eye; however, he has a strong interest in glaucoma and diseases of the lens as well.
What Dr. Alario enjoys most about ophthalmology is the variety of species he has the opportunity to work with and the many unique ocular adaptations each animal has developed. He also has a specific interest in ophthalmic surgery and methods of improving visual outcome from surgical disease. Dr. Alario performs many ocular surgeries, including cataract surgery, lens extractions, corneal transplants, conjunctival grafting procedures for complicated corneal ulcers and various eyelid surgeries.
Dr. Alario lives with his better half, also a veterinarian, and their young son Connor. They share their home with four cats and two dogs, Capone and Vicki. The whole family loves the outdoors and hiking. Dr. Alario also has a particular interest in photography and is eager to explore his new backdrop in NH.
