Treating visual development in children because family comes first.
Our pediatric ophthalmologists are here to diagnose, treat and manage your children’s eye problems. We offer micro and laser surgery, surgery for crossed eyes (strabismus), wandering eyes, treatment of blocked tear ducts, retinal problems and infections. Our team can also diagnose problems caused by diabetes, juvenile rheumatoid arthritis and other medical and neurological diseases and provide Neonatal Surgery and Care.
We work with your primary care physician to monitor your eye health and to make sure you are receiving your annual required eye exams.
Caring for your children is our number one priority, so we’ll work together to determine what treatment options that are right for you and your child.
We spend time with you and your family. We talk about your challenges, recommend a treatment plan that puts your children first and set them on a path toward better vision. We work together with both you and your family optometrist to customize our plan based on the results of your consultation and offer a solution that makes the most sense for you and your family. It’s a team approach, where we help you figure out what questions to ask, and provide you with answers that lead to the best treatment plans.
Often referred to as cross eyes, strabismus is a misalignment where one eye may be turned in (esotropia) or turned out (exotropia). Any infant who continues to show an eye misalignment after 4 months of age or a child who later acquires strabismus should have a complete eye examination. Strabismus can be treated with surgery, glasses, or eye exercises.
Healthy eyes constantly make tears and keep the eye moist. When the tear ducts are blocked, the eyes can become watery and cause crying because there are too many tears. 1 in 5 newborns has a tear duct that is not fully developed and occasionally a surgical procedure is necessary to unblock the tear duct.
Often referred to as a lazy eye, Amblyopia occurs in infants and young when there is cataract, strabismus, ptosis (droopy eyelid), eye injury, or refractive error that is worse in one eye. Amblyopia usually does not have symptoms and often is discovered at a school vision screening between the ages of 6 –19 years.. The child wears glasses or a patch over the good eye and treats the bad eye with eyedrops.
