The Pediatric Ophthalmology Department at Nayana Eye Care deals with eye problems in children. Adult patients suffering from squint and double vision are also examined and treated effectively.
Children may not complain if they do not see out of one or both eyes. Sometimes the only clue may be poor performance in School, as well viewing the blackboard at a very close distance. Hence all children need an eye exam at the time of starting Schooling.
Of the eye problems in children, the most important are refractive errors, squint and amblyopia.
Refractive error or the need for glasses is the single most important cause of vision impairment in children. This may lead to permanent deficiency in vision if not detected and treated early.
Squint, also known as cross eyes, is the condition where the eyes do not work together. Treatment includes glasses, eye exercises or eye muscle surgery.
Lazy eye or amblyopia is the term for poor vision in one or both eyes. It can result from refractive error, squint or several other causes. This needs to be identified and treated at an early age to recover vision.
Infants born prematurely are at risk for developing Retinopathy of pre-maturity (ROP) which may lead to permanent blindness. Retinal surgeons and Paediatric Ophthalmologists at Nayana Eye Care provide valuable services in treatment of this disorder.
Cataract (opacification of the lens) can occur in children. This may be present since birth or result from injury. The treatment involves surgical procedures but very often treatment of lazy eye.
There are several causes of double vision and squint in adults as well. These are managed by exercise, special glasses, and eye muscle surgery when required.
We provide services for a wide variety of pediatric ophthalmic diseases such as:
- Eye muscle problems (strabismus),
- Lazy eye (amblyopia),
- Droopy lids (ptosis),
