Pediatric Ophthalmology

Pediatric Ophthalmology is the branch of medicine concerned with the care of Children’s eyes. An ophthalmologist has the utmost knowledge of possible conditions that affect the pediatric patient and his/her eyes. Development of vision occurs until an age of 12 years. Some of the conditions of the eye are misalignment of the eyes also called as Strabismus, uncorrected refractive error known as myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism and Anisometropia known as asymmetry of refractive error between the eyes which cause amblyopia. These conditions should be treated early so to maintain and develop good vision.
