Children’s eye care needs are different from those of adults. No one understands this as well as the ophthalmologists at Eswar Eye Hospital They specialize in diagnosing and treating common and rare eye conditions in infants, children and teens.
Early diagnosis and treatment of childhood eye diseases and disorders significantly impact your child’s physical, emotional and social development. If you have an infant, your pediatrician should perform vision screening during the first year of life. Vision screening should be repeated periodically throughout childhood, particularly between the ages 4 to 5 years to detect amblyopia or its risk factors. Children with a family history of amblyopia, strabismus, congenital cataracts, congenital glaucoma, or retinoblastoma may benefit from a complete eye exam. In addition, those children who have certain medical conditions such as intellectual disabilities, developmental delay, Down syndrome, neurofibromatosis, prematurity or behavioral issues benefit greatly from a comprehensive eye examination by an ophthalmologist
