Conditions We Treat

Refractive Errors

Blocked Tear Ducts

Blocked tear ducts are common in infants and can lead to excessive tearing and infection. Our specialists can perform procedures to open the tear ducts, relieving symptoms and preventing further complications.

Pediatric Glaucoma

Glaucoma is a serious condition that can occur in children, leading to increased eye pressure and potential vision loss. Our team is adept at managing pediatric glaucoma through medication and surgery when necessary.

Retinopathy of Prematurity (ROP)

Premature infants are at risk for retinopathy of prematurity, a condition that can affect the retina and vision. We offer thorough screenings and treatments to manage and mitigate the risks associated with ROP.

Premature Baby Retinopathy of Prematurity

Strabismus (Crossed Eyes)

Strabismus is the misalignment of the eyes, which can affect vision and appearance. Our team offers both non-surgical and surgical options to correct eye alignment, ensuring that your child can see clearly and confidently.

Amblyopia (Lazy Eye)

Amblyopia, commonly known as lazy eye, is a condition where one eye does not develop proper vision. Early detection and treatment are crucial. Our specialists use a variety of methods, including patching and vision therapy, to strengthen the weaker eye and improve vision.

Our Services

Comprehensive Eye Exams

Regular eye exams are essential for detecting vision problems early. We provide thorough eye examinations tailored to the needs of children, ensuring any issues are identified and treated promptly.

Vision Therapy

For conditions like amblyopia and certain binocular vision problems, we offer vision therapy programs designed to improve visual skills and processing.

Surgical Interventions

When surgery is necessary, our pediatric ophthalmologists use minimally invasive techniques to correct eye conditions, ensuring quick recovery and minimal discomfort.

Eyewear and Contact Lenses

We offer a wide selection of eyewear specifically designed for children. Our opticians help ensure a perfect fit and style that your child will love. We also provide contact lens fittings for older children and teenagers.

Does My Child Need Glasses?

Glasses are prescribed to correct for significant changes in vision such as myopia (nearsightedness or trouble seeing without objects); hyperopia (farsightedness or trouble seeing near objects occasionally resulting in crossing of the eyes in young children); astigmatism (irregularly shaped eyes resulting in blurred vision); and anisometropia (unequal focus between the two eyes which may result in amblyopia or one eye becoming weaker than the other).
Children particularly at risk for requiring glasses are those who were premature, have family members who wear glasses (particularly siblings), have strabismus (crossing of the eyes), or show behavior consistent with poor vision such as squinting.
A child’s requirement for glasses can be checked accurately and painlessly by a pediatric ophthalmologist, at any age (even newborns), using specialized equipment.
