Marisa Perez Orrico

I graduated from UCH-CEU in Valencia (Spain) in 2005, where I discovered my passion for ophthalmology. I worked in general practice and I obtained the C.E.S. in Veterinary Ophthalmology from the ENVT (France) in 2008. Since then, I have worked mainly in referral ophthalmology centres in Spain and UK.

Over the years, I have done externships in referral centres in Europe and Australia, developed my research skills, published in peer-review journals and presented in international congresses.

I also developed a strong interest in teaching and I enjoy lecturing the exotic animal module of the postgraduate Diploma in Veterinary Ophthalmology organized by the UCM in Madrid (Spain). Additionally, I have collaborated with exotic animal specialists and provided ophthalmology advice to several exotic animal services, zoos and aquariums.

In December 2021, I started my ECVO residency at Willows Veterinary Centre and Referral Service, under the supervision of Dr Samuela Mazzucchelli and Dr Rodrigo Pinheiro de Lacerda. Out of work,

I enjoy travelling, outdoor activities, and spending time with my family, friends and my rescued dog and cat.
