All ophthalmologists have training in children’s eye problems. At Aayush Eye Clinic, we evaluate and treat a full range of eye conditions that affect children like refractive errors, childhood cataract, glaucoma, amblyopia (lazy eye), squint and retinal disorders, pediatric eye cancer and congenital anomalies like blocked tear ducts.
Neurological development of vision occurs until approximately age 9, and can be affected by eyes that are misaligned (strabismus) or do not focus clearly. If these conditions are diagnosed and treated early, good vision can develop and be maintained.
Pediatric Ophthalmology procedures
Vision assessment- it takes particular skills to test a child’s eyesight, especially in the pre-school child. Different methods are used for different ages.
Ocular Motility examinations - quantitative measurement of ocular misalignment is necessary for planning medical and surgical management of strabismus.
Biomicroscopy and dilated fundus examinations are carried out to investigate the presence of eye disease associated with systemic disease (e.g. diabetes, JIA, genetic abnormalities, neurological pathology (increased intracranial pressure) or ocular disease (e.g. cataracts, glaucoma).
Examination under anesthesia (EUA) - for diagnostic and/or therapeutic intervention. Monitor diseases over time and assess the efficacy of treatment.
