Pediatric Ophthalmology

A subspecialty of ophthalmologypediatric ophthalmology deals with eye diseases, visual development, and child vision care. A pediatric ophthalmologist has the experience and credentials to treat a child who needs surgery or medical treatment for an illness affecting the eyes, is having difficulty with a vision screening exam, has difficulty reading or learning, or has an eye problem.

Children's eyes can be examined, tested for vision by optometrists and ophthalmologists, and glasses or contacts can be prescribed if necessary. Although they aren't doctors, optometrists can prescribe medication for some eye conditions. Ophthalmologists are able to diagnose, treat, and, when necessary, perform surgery for all eye diseases and disorders. Frequently, young children are unable to accurately describe their symptoms or respond to medical inquiries. Pediatric ophthalmologists have a lot of experience treating children in a way that makes them feel at ease and willing to cooperate. They employ child-appropriately sized special equipment and vision tests tailored to the child's developmental stage.
