Why To Choose Pediatric Ophthalmologist For Your Child?

If your young ones have an eye problem or are facing difficulty with  their vision, or need any kind of eye surgery or medical assistance, a pediatric ophthalmologist is the one you should reach out for as he/she has expertise in dealing with children and in treating children’s eye disorders.

Besides, children cannot always explain what is bothering them and many potentially serious eye problems begin in infancy, but can go undetected. However, pediatric ophthalmologist is skilled at recognising even subtle signs of eye problems and knows how exactly to examine and treat children so that they feel comfortable and relaxed. 

Pediatric ophthalmologist screens your child’s eyes at birth and conducts eye checkups at regular intervals.

 Some Common Eye Problems In Children Includes:

Blocked Tear Ducts: This is a very common condition that occurs in infancy when membrane in the tear duct that drains to the nose does not open after birth. Resultantly, tears cannot drain which may cause watery eyes and other eye infections. At times the problem gets resolved without any treatments but some babies may need gentle massage or a surgical procedure to open the membrane.

Congenital Cataract: Some children are born with cataract or few may develop them in childhood as a result of other diseases, such as diabetes. Like in older adults, cataract in children causes clouding of the eyes lens that causes blurred or double vision. Many a times these cataracts require surgery.

Amblyopia/Lazy Eye: Amblyopia is a condition in which vision in one eye is reduced because the eye and brain do not work together properly. If not treated in time, vision can become permanently impaired in the lazy eye. Amblyopia is the most common cause of visual problems in children and its treatment may include patching the good eye to force the lazy eye to work, special eye drops, surgery, etc.

Lazy Eye

Strabismus: This is another common eye problem seen among children. In this condition the eyes are crossed or wander. One eye may gaze straight ahead while the other moves upward, downward, inward or outward. Treatment for strabismus also includes patching and eye drops to make the weak eye functional or a surgery.


Refractive Errors: These errors occur when the eye is incorrectly shaped and vision becomes blurry. As a result your child may face symptoms like bouts of headache, finding difficulty in focusing things, difficulty in reading, etc. The most common of these errors include nearsightedness or myopia, farsightedness or hyperopia and astigmatism which is an abnormal curve of the front surface of the eye.
