Pediatric Ophthalmology


Pediatric ophthalmologists specialize in caring for children’s eyes. It’s important to screen your child at an early age to detect eye conditions such as:

  • Lazy eye (amblyopia)
  • Crossed eyes (strabismus) 
  • Birth defects like unopened tear ducts (congenital tear duct obstruction)

Services & Treatment

Treatments vary depending on the condition and may include medication, therapy, corrective lenses (eyeglasses) and/or surgery. Our pediatric ophthalmologists can discuss the right action for your child’s needs.
