Pediatric Strabismus

 Pediatric Strabismus deals with diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of eye disorders in the pediatric age group and the treatment of strabismus or abnormal alignment of the eyes. Pediatric Eye care is essential to help understand and prescribe the best possible treatment for eye disorders in children. Strabismus is the medical term for misalignment of the eyes – two eyes that are not straight. It occurs in at least 5% of the population. There are three common types: Esotropia, or “cross eye,” where one eye is turned inward, toward the nose, Exotropia and Hypertropia.Our eyes are such a beautiful gift, so when a child is diagnosed with acute pediatric strabismus, it’s natural that parents are concerned and want to help their child. Strabismus can run in families. Sometimes the condition is due to the eyes being out of focus; in this case, eye glasses are part of the treatment. Sometimes there is a problem with the eye muscles or nerves.
Strabismus can also be caused by a serious problem inside the eye, such as a tumor or a cataract, which leads to poor vision.
