Pediatric ophthalmology is a branch of ophthalmology that specializes in children’s visual development and children’s eye health. Eye disorders can occur at any point during childhood, and it is crucial to treat those affecting the visual development as early as possible in order to achieve optimal vision and prevent complications.
The pediatric ophthalmology division at KMN EyeCare treats various eye disorders of children, including refractive errors, amblyopia (lazy eye), congenital/developmental cataract, obstruction of the tear duct, and pediatric retinal disorders such as retinopathy of prematurity (ROP).The pediatric ophthalmology team at KMN EyeCare is run by professionals who have gathered many years of experience as children’s eye doctors. Pediatric ophthalmologists at KMN EyeCare create a comfortable environment for our young patients to help them relax and cooperate throughout examinations. They provide thorough children’s eye examinations leading to a diagnosis and subsequent treatments such as glasses prescriptions as well as any necessary eye surgeries.
