What is paediatric ophthalmology?
A branch of ophthalmology called paediatric ophthalmology is entirely concerned with issues that impact children’s eye health. Whether your child is having trouble reading or studying, or needs surgery or medical care for an eye condition, our team of paediatric ophthalmologists has the expertise and commitment to provide them with the right solutions for healthy and problem-free vision. Children’s eye doctors are unique and have different training than adults.This is due to the fact that diagnosing and treating the various eye illnesses that affect children and adults differently requires the use of various diagnostic tools. Our comprehensive eye care at Choithram Netralaya includes such treatment in a child-friendly environment.
The most frequent eye conditions seen in children are squinting, refractive error, lazy eye disease, watering of the eyes, developmental or congenital cataracts, eye allergies, eye injuries, retinopathy of prematurity (ROP), and, less frequently, tumors.
