Conditions We Treat 

Pediatric ophthalmologists have a special way with kids, talking and relating to them so they understand vision problems and feel comfortable during eye exams. Our specialists perform eye exams and surgery as well as care for eye injuries.

Early diagnosis and treatment is important to prevent eye diseases and vision disorders from progressing and severely hindering your child's eyesight. They can treat a range of conditions, including:

  • Eye muscle disorders
  • Amblyopia (“lazy eye”)
  • Retinopathy of prematurity (often called ROP or Terry syndrome)
  • Ptosis (drooping eyelid)
  • Nasolacrimal duct (tear duct) obstructions
  • Strabismus (abnormal alignment of the eyes)
  • The Importance of Childhood Eye Exams

    Early eye exams are important because children need visual skills that are essential for optimal learning. Learn more here about the importance of annual eye exams for your children!
