“Every mountain top is within reach if you just keep climbing.”
— Richard James Molloy
What is Pediatric Ophthalmology ?Pediatric ophthalmology is a subspecialty of ophthalmology dealing with children’s eye diseases. The human visual system develops as the brain matures, a process that takes about ten years. Although a baby’s eyes are optically capable of seeing, infant vision is limited to around 20/1500 (the ability to see the shapes of people but not their features), in part because the brain has not learned how to process the visual messages it receives. As visual development proceeds, that same child will eventually be able to detect the finest details in an image.
Some ophthalmic problems encountered in children and frequently treated by our specialists include amblyopia, strabismus, pediatric glaucoma, brain disorders that affect vision, retinopathy or prematurity and retinoblastoma.
