Pediatric Ophthalmology

Pediatric ophthalmology is a sub-speciality of ophthalmology concerned with eye diseases, visual development, and vision care in children. Usually pediatric ophthalmologists focus on the development of the visual system and the various diseases that disrupt visual development in children. Children experience a variety of eye problems, many quite distinct from adult eye diseases. Pediatric ophthalmologists ares specially trained to manage such diseases like Pediatric glaucoma, this is a rare condition that may be inherited, caused by incorrect development of the eye’s drainage system before birth. This leads to increased intraocular pressure, which in turn damages the optic nerve. Symptoms of childhood glaucoma include enlarged eyes, cloudiness of the cornea, and photosensitivity. Both medication and surgery are required in some cases. Strabismus is a condition that interferes with binocular vision because it prevents a person from directing both eyes simultaneously towards the same fixation point. It is estimated that up to 5% of all children have some type or degree of strabismus. Children with strabismus may initially have double vision. This occurs because of the misalignment of the two eyes in relation to one another. In an attempt to avoid double vision, the brain will eventually disregard the image of one eye called suppression.
