Our ophthalmologists specialize in treating a wide range of pediatric eye conditions.
Pediatric eye conditions refer to a range of disorders that impact the vision of infants, children, and adolescents. Early detection and management of these conditions is crucial to ensuring optimal visual development and long-term eye health.
We understand the unique challenges of diagnosing pediatric eye conditions. Our dedicated ophthalmologists employ specialized techniques to ensure accurate diagnoses.
The diagnostic process may involve:
Assessing your child's ability to see and identify objects at various distances to evaluate their visual clarity.
Conducting a comprehensive examination to evaluate eye alignment, focusing ability, eye movements, and overall eye health.
Utilizing a handheld instrument to measure the refractive error of your child's eyes without requiring their active participation.
Employing child-friendly techniques such as pictures, shapes, or light stimuli to evaluate visual development, colour vision, depth perception, and more.
Utilizing advanced imaging technologies like optical coherence tomography (OCT) or ultrasound to obtain detailed images of the eye structures if necessary.
Through a combination of these assessments, we can accurately diagnose your child's specific eye condition and develop an appropriate treatment plan tailored to their needs.
We offer a comprehensive range of treatment options designed to address pediatric eye conditions and promote healthy visual development.
Our treatment approach may include:
Glasses or Contact Lenses
Prescribing corrective lenses to correct refractive errors and improve visual acuity.
Implementing personalized exercises and activities to enhance eye coordination, visual tracking, and overall visual processing skills.
Occluding the stronger eye to stimulate visual development in the weaker eye, effectively treating amblyopia or lazy eye.
Correcting misaligned eyes through surgical intervention to improve eye alignment and depth perception.
Removing cataracts and implanting intraocular lenses (IOLs) in children with pediatric cataracts to restore vision.
